Two other American stuntmen were seriously hurt but were not in life-threatening condition, doctors said.Police investigator Jaime Talay said the Dolphin helicopter crashed at the foot of a hill near a mansion once owned by former President Ferdinand Marcos in Tagaytay, a mountain resort city 30 miles south of Manila.
