Just little earlier today Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Mr Devendra Fadnavis went to attend an event in in Halgara village in Latur. The CM went there to attend an event of BJP’s farmer outreach programme along with principal secretary Pravin Pardeshi and staff Abimanyu Pawar and Ketan Pathak.
In this video, you can watch the Helicopter carrying the CM, and his fellow officials crash-landed soon after the takeoff. If you watch carefully then you will find that the chopper did not crash because of the pilot’s fault or mechanical fault of the helicopter. The pilot noticed heavy winds which could have made the Pilot lose control of the Chopper, so he decided an emergency landing soon after take-off. But during an emergency landing, the helicopter got tangled in electric wires which resulted in the Pilot losing control of the Chopper and crash landed on the spot.
Fortunately, everybody sitting in the Helicopter including CM of Maharashtra Mr Devendra Fadnavis walked out of the accident unhurt. The help arrived for the CM and his team almost immediately and took the CM and his other officials for a medical checkup. The CM has later called for a probe into this incident. According to some official reports, there was a total of 6 persons on board the helicopter, and no one was seriously injured in the incident.
The video shown here was captured by a spectator who was present there at the time of the crash
