Two-Hundred Kilometers Below What!?

The December 14th, 2015 title to a report in the Korea Herald read, "Two dead in MTV helicopter crash in Argentina," and the tragic details followed, culminating in a baffling, final one-sentence paragraph:
Rescuers trying to reach the downed helicopter said it had penetrated some 200 kilometers below the surface.
Baffling, as I said. But it must be true. Only an expert would go out on so far a limb!

I'd link to this report, but I can't find it on the Korea Herald website, and I have only the hard copy.

It might have helped if the article in the Herald mentioned the helicopter crashed into a reservoir of water. Read it Here. There is a small difference in 200 feet below the surface and 200 Km below.

Yeah, just a slight difference, not enough to amount to anything.
