Heli down in Indo

Very little information available, but believe it was a Lama around the Halma Hera/Wheda bay area (Apologies for spelling) Pilot is severely battered and bruised, busted ribs, possible other fractures, smashed up face but at present stable. Happened this morning (Sunday) slinging on a longline. Apparently Helicopter is complete write off (1000 pieces comment was said..). Lot to be said for wearing a helmet, as this is possibly what has saved his life.
Very good mate of mine, just wondering if anyone is over that way and has any more information.
Good luck mate, Beers on me next time.

Yeah, was RJ. Being hospitalised in Jakarta I think now. Lots of breaks and fractures, but good news is no internal bleeding.
