It is apparently their S-92.

ST. JOHNíS, N.L. ó A Cougar helicopter with 18 people onboard has gone down in the Atlantic Ocean about 90 nautical miles southeast of St. Johnís.

A Provincial Airlines plane circling overhead reports seeing a liferaft and two people in the water. The helicopter cannot be seen, nor can they see if anyone is in the liferaft.

Four helicopters and two vessels are just about on the scene. The coast guard vessel Cape Roger is 90 minutes away and a supply ship will be on scene at 11:30 a.m. Newfoundland time.

The mayday came in at 9:18 a.m.
