Norwegian police are searching for two missing bodies after an Airbus EC-225 helicopter crashed on an island off western Norway, killing all 13 people on board.

Police spokesman Per Angel said on Saturday they also were working on identifying the 11 victims found so far.

The helicopter carrying workers from an offshore rig in the North Sea went down on Turoey, a tiny island outside Bergen, Norway’s second-largest city.

Eleven Norwegians, one Briton and one Italian were aboard the aircraft that went down for unknown reasons.

Norway TV2 channel aired footage said to show what seems to be a helicopter rotor spiralling down minutes before the helicopter crashed.

The rotor was found on land while the fuselage crashed at sea.
