Mexican Interior Minister Alfonso Navarrete and Governor of Oaxaca Alejandro Murat were involved in a helicopter crash on Saturday. Both officials survived, Mexico's Interior Ministry confirmed.

However, two civilians on the ground were killed in the crash.

The officials were en route to survey the aftermath of the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that hit the southern Mexican state earlier on Friday night.
