Rescuers recovered on Sunday the wreckage of a crashed helicopter and the body of a victim in a reservoir in Hefei, capital of east China's Anhui Province.

One pilot was rescued after a private helicopter carrying two men fell into the Dongpu Reservoir on Friday.

The survival pilot, surnamed Li, said he managed to swim to the island after the crash. But the other 25-year-old man, surnamed Wang, went missing after the crash.

Li is being treated in a local hospital and is in stable condition, according to medical staff.

Rescuers found the helicopter wreckage at about 12:00 noon on Sunday and retrieved Wang's body in the afternoon.

Witness said they saw the helicopter drop into the reservoir after skimming above the water surface at about 17:45 on Friday.

According to local laws, helicopters must obtain a permit from the civil aviation department before flying.

However, local civil aviation department had not been informed in advance of the flight plan of this helicopter, said the Hefei Public Security Bureau, adding that it was an unauthorized flight.
