Indonesian Chopper Crashed, Killing 3 Personnel In Java
Jakarta, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 9th july, 2016) : Military helicopter has crashed in Indonesia's Central province Java, killing 3 people in the accident. Indonesia's disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said six passengers were on board the helicopter when it crashed into a suburban area north of the city of Yogyakarta on the island of Java on Friday.
"Three personnel died," the spokesman said, adding that three other people were also seriously wounded. Bambang Sulistyo, the head of Indonesia's search and rescue agency, said in his initial reports that suggested six people were aboard the helicopter and three had died, but strained inquiries were still in progress.
The Indonesian military has been hit with frequent airplane accidents in recent years, several involving crashes in urban areas. 12 people were killed when a military helicopter went down in bad weather in central Indonesia in March.
The preceding month, a military plane crashed into a house in a heavily inhabited area during a test flight, killing the pilot and two people in the building. In June 2015, a Hercules C-130 crashed into a suburban locality in Medan, the largest city on Sumatra island, killing 142 people and causing extensive damage.
