Pak military helicopter crashes

A Pakistan Army helicopter crashed in the Pakistan-occupied Gilgit Baltistan (GB) region, leaving all four occupants dead. A pilot and co-pilot, both of major rank, were killed along with two soldiers.

Xinhua reports that the Pakistani army's media wing Inter-Services Public Relations said in a statement that the helicopter crashed on Saturday due to technical reasons when it was evacuating the body of a soldier.

No loss of life was reported at the ground by the military. The incident occurred at a remote valley with no residential settlement on ground. Military teams arrived at the crash site following the accident and recovered the bodies from the wreckage of the completely destroyed helicopter.
