Wreckage of Crashed Chopper Found

Wreckage of Crashed Chopper Found

 

The fuselage of a helicopter that crashed last week in waters off Gageodo Island was found last night.

The accident left one dead and three others that were on a mission to transport an emergency patient to an inland hospital are missing. The pilot was trying to land near a seawall when the crash occurred.

The regional coast guard dispatched a group of deep-sea divers around 7 p.m. yesterday when the tidal currents were expected to calm, making it possible to search for those missing.

The coast guard had initially looked for the missing inside the chopper and then to try to raise the wreckage with a floating crane but since the body of the helicopter will be recovered first in protective netting, the search for the missing will follow after that.
