Las Vegas – Nevada authorities say a British tourist who was pulled from the wreckage of a fiery helicopter crash in the Grand Canyon has died from her injuries, bringing the total number of deaths from the crash up to five.

Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg has confirmed that 29-year-old Ellie Milward died on Sunday at University Medical Centre.

Milward had been in critical condition since the February 10 crash. Her husband, Jonathan Udall, died last week from injuries suffered in the same crash.

They had been on their honeymoon with a group of fellow Britons visiting Las Vegas when a sightseeing helicopter they were flying in crashed in the Grand Canyon.

Three people died the day of the crash, Milward and Udall died after being hospitalised, and two people are still in critical condition.
