Two Malaysian military helicopters collided and crashed during a training session on Tuesday, killing all 10 crew onboard, the country's rescue agency said.

Suhaimy Mohamad Suhail, senior operations commander from the fire and rescue department, said: "The two helicopters collided during flight training. All 10 victims on board have been confirmed dead by the medical officers."

Videos shared online showed several helicopters flying low in a formation over the Lumut naval stadium in a rehearsal ahead of the navy fleet’s open day celebrations in May.

One of the choppers was seen clipping the rear rotor of another helicopter, causing both to go into a tailspin and crash.

In the footage, witnesses were heard shouting "Allah, Allah, Allah".
