Four Killed when Helicopter Hits Zipline and Crashes Bursting into Flames

Four crew members lost their lives after their rescue helicopter crashed into Ras Al Khaimah's Jebel Jais mountain, UAE. It hit a zipline before crashing and bursting into flames.

The three Emiratis onboard have been identified as:

-Pilot S. S. M. A. A.

-Pilot H. M. O. A. - who hailed from Al Salehia area in Ras Al Khaimah, was leading the rescue team.

-Navigator J. A. A. T.

- Flight Paramedic M. R. - a South African national.

Eyewitnesses said the tragic mishap took place around 6.30pm on Saturday.

"The chopper went into a spin all of a sudden and then crashed into the mountain. It burst into a ball of fire," an eyewitness said.

Police sources have confirmed the tragic mishap. "More details will be announced shortly," they said.

The RAK Tourism Development Authority said zipline visitors were safe. "The tragic chopper collision took place 50 minutes after the closure of the zipline," it said.

Officials are assessing if any of the ziplines have been damaged as a result of the accident.

terrible feeling when you know you're going to die, almost in slow-motion.
