Mexican businessmen killed in helicopter crash-media

MEXICO CITY, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Three members of one of Mexico’s wealthiest families were killed in a helicopter crash in the outskirts of Mexico City on Sunday night, a city official told the Milenio television station.

Local prosecutor Antonio Grandos said three members of the Saba family, which controls businesses ranging from telecoms to pharmaceuticals, were among five people killed when a private helicopter crashed in cold and foggy weather in the capital, Milenio reported.

Emergency officials told Reuters there were at least four people killed in the crash.

It was not immediately clear which members of the family were on board.

The most prominent executive in the powerful clan is Mexican tycoon Moises Saba Masri. (Reporting by Mica Rosenberg and Cyntia Barrera; Editing by Eric Beech)
