Mozambique police (PRM) have said the crash of the Mozambican Air Force helicopter on Saturday morning in Cabo Delgado, in the north of the country, was caused by technical problems.
Preliminary analysis pointed to “technical problems”, but “a technical team has been called to conduct a thorough investigation and will present a detailed report within 10 days”, police spokesman Orlando Mudumane told a press conference on Saturday evening.
The Mozambican Air Force helicopter crashed in Muidumbe district, Cabo Delgado province, northern Mozambique, injuring all six occupants.
One of the victims was seriously injured and had to be evacuated to the Mueda District Hospital in Cabo Delgado, more than 2,000 kilometres from Maputo.
According to the police spokesman, all the victims have been medically assisted and are out of danger.
The helicopter crashed in forest in Muidumbe district, near the village of Lijungo in the Muambula administrative post.
This is the second helicopter to crash in Cabo Delgado after an FA 079 military helicopter carrying eight individuals crashed in April in the Mueda district, also without loss of life.Source: Lusa
