A South African hotel group says Nicholas More, co-owner and CEO of a game reserve in South Africa's northeast, has died in a helicopter crash.

   The family-owned More Hotels says two other men and a woman also died in the accident on Tuesday morning. The hotel group says in a

statement that More was piloting the aircraft and on his way to a business meeting in Johannesburg when the aircraft crashed.

   The statement cites "unconfirmed reports" of heavy mist at the time of the crash. An investigation is underway.

   More was head of Lion Sands game reserve, whose lodges attract international tourists. The park is part of the larger Sabi Sands reserve.
