Chopper Carrying Aid for Earthquake Victims Crashes in Southern Mexico

MEXICO CITY – An air force helicopter carrying aid for victims of last week’s earthquake in Mexico crashed while heading to Chiapas state, injuring three of the seven people aboard, emergency management officials said Tuesday.

Three of the helicopter’s occupants have fractures that are not life threatening and the other four have some bumps but are “in perfect health,” National Emergency Management Office chief Luis Felipe Puente said.

The cause of the accident has not been determined, Chiapas emergency management office spokesman Manuel Aragon told EFE.

The helicopter crashed on approach to Nueva Colombia, a coffee-growing community in Chiapas, Aragon said.

The magnitude-8.2 earthquake on Sept. 7 affected 2.3 million people in Chiapas and Oaxaca states.

The death toll currently stands at 16 in Chiapas, 76 in Oaxaca and four in Tabasco.
