10-06-2012

A Peruvian police squad found the burned-out shell of a helicopter that had gone missing in the southwestern mountain region. The helicopter had exploded. None of the 14 passengers, among them one Czech citizen, survived. The search for the missing aircraft had been especially difficult due to the mountainous terrain and the cold temperatures. The helicopter had lost contact with tower personnel on Wednesday several hours after take-off.
