The horror crash happened on Wednesday in Engenheiro Caldas in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais.

The helicopter then appears to lose power and is last seen nose-diving to the ground.

The impact caused a fire that the fire department was able to bring under control.

And all of its passengers managed to escape from the wreck with minor injuries.

The plane was carrying Brazilian MP Hercílio Araújo Diniz, 59, who is running for re-election, and David Barroso, 45, Governador Valadares’ deputy mayor.

Also on board were the pilot named Fabiano Rufino and Luciano Viana, a member of the Diniz campaign team.

They were all rescued by rescue workers and taken to a private hospital in the area.

Firefighters said the plane lost control, collided with power grids and fell onto the side of a highway, according to local media.

The crash caused a power outage in the municipalities of Sobrália and Fernandes Tourinho.
