A man sliced to death by a helicopter blade during rescue mission
Engineer is sliced to death by a helicopter blade while carrying out recovery mission at the site of another crashed chopper in Colombia.
This is the shocking moment a helicopter flips over and slices a man to death during a recovery mission of another broken down chopper in Colombia.
The first helicopter had gone down in a rural part of the southwestern Cauca District a week before following technical issues.
With the first helicopter carrying valuable equipment, another mission was sent out to retrieve it.
However, suddenly the aircraft tips to the side and rolls over, with López Londoño hit by the rotating blades just out of shot.
López Londoño, who reportedly worked as a maintenance manager for the helicopter company, died at the scene.
The pilot suffered a wrist injury and bruising when the helicopter overturned, and was transferred to hospital.
Local authorities have launched an investigation to establish the cause of the accident, which took place last Sunday.
