Scottish officials say there may be more fatalities from the deadly helicopter crash in Glasgow. Eight deaths have been confirmed so far.

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmon told the BBC on Sunday that of the 12 people injured, three are in intensive care but that they are in stable condition.

The helicopter crashed into The Clutha club in Glasgow on Friday during a concert.

Emergency officials are still searching the crash site for bodies while working to remove the aircraft's wreckage.

Investigators also are looking into what could have caused the helicopter to go down.
