Various news outlets are reporting the crash of a helicopter being used in the humanitarian relief effort for the Yazidi refugees in Iraq.

Jim Sciutto who has been covering the crisis in Iraq for weeks reports that Vian Dakhil, the only member of the Iraqi Parliament representing the Yazidi minority group was on the helicopter.

Additional reports now say the helicopter pilot was the only death, but many of the passengers are injured including Dakhil and her son who was on board as well.

Just last week, Dakhil gave a passionate speech in the Iraqi Parliament pleading for the world to stop the Yazidi genocide by the Islamic State terrorists.

In addition to Dakhil, the New York Times reports one of its reporters was also on the humanitarian mission helicopter that crashed.

This post will be updated as more news about the crash is released.

Update: More reports she survived:
