A Pawan Hans helicopter, with two pilots and seven others including six ONGC representatives installed, fell into the Arabian Sea around 50 nautical miles from the Mumbai coast
A shiny new Pawan Hans’ Sikorsky chopper with 9 individuals on board collided with the Arabian Sea, around 50 nautical miles from the Mumbai coast on Tuesday, killing four individuals – – including three ONGC representatives.
The helicopter, which was important for the six Sikorsky S-76D helicopters that Pawan Hans had as of late rented from Milestone Aviation Group, was around 4-5 minutes from its objective – ONGC’s Sagar Kiran rig – when the occurrence occurred, organization authorities with direct information regarding this situation said.
The chopper went down around 1145 hrs, only 1 nautical pretty far from Sagar Kiran, yet figured out how to remain above water with the assistance of the connected floaters, assisting heros with taking out all the nine, including two pilots, after ONGC and Navy/Coast Guard mixed in one of the quickest salvage missions in the western seaward.
Four of the nine pulled out were oblivious and transported in a Navy chopper to an emergency clinic in Mumbai, where they were pronounced dead, an authority said.
