Army helicopter crash lands during rescue

PESHAWAR: One of the three Pakistan Army transport helicopters that rescued victims of the attack on the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Badaber Camp crash landed here on Friday.


Though there were rumours that the helicopter was hit by the terrorists during the takeoff from the airbase, security officials and Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asim Salim Bajwa denied these reports.


They said it was a transport helicopter that developed a technical fault and crash landed before the take-off. According to security officials, the pilot, co-pilot and other staff in the helicopter remained unhurt. The helicopter, however, was damaged.
