Rescue helicopter crash South Korea.

Helicopter crashes carrying out a rescue

(Google Translate) Today (1st), a fire helicopter that rescued 60-year-old hikers who fell into a state of emergency near the Cheonwangbong Peak in Jiri Mountain during the day crashed.

The five rescuers on the helicopter were unharmed, but unfortunately the patient and his wife, who watched the rescue process underneath, died.

Hikers escape under the fire helicopter floating near Cheonwangbong in Jirisan Mountain.

The stretcher carrying the people seemed to rise above, and soon he sat down with the helicopter.

The hiker, who was in a state of deep sleep, was lying on a stretcher and being pulled up.

[Seo Byeong-Yeol / Gyeongnam Changwon-si: "Suddenly, it came down suddenly. It didn't crash, and it came down.

The accident was rescued by a 65-year-old hiker Jo Mo, who was rescued from the accident, and Cho's wife, 61-year-old Kwon Mo, who watched it under a helicopter.

The couple had an accident when they visited Cheonwangbong in Jirisan, which was opened in two months after the holidays.

It was reported that all five rescuers in the helicopter were not seriously injured.

Tragic. It looks like it might have suffered a single engine rundown at the worst possible time, resulting in over pitching and partial loss of tail rotor effectiveness.

I don't know what the OEI performance in those is like but hovering higher with a flyaway option would have been sensible it seems.

I've got a few hundred hours on that model. I'd say the OEI performance is just about as demonstrated (if that's what happened).

I'm not convinced a full flyaway option would have been possible, but a higher hover position should have allowed the aircraft to at least have been flown forwards and down to clear those working directly below. Looks like the aircraft landed on some sort of hump.

That made me laugh and now I feel bad. Thanks Crab.

The lump also consisted of the casualty’s wife.

five rescuers onboard while winching, that would make the helicopter struggle OEI I would have thought.
