The Defense Forces Guyana confirmed the death of five of the seven soldiers traveling aboard a helicopter that disappeared on Wednesday evening, while in a location not far from the border with Venezuela. The carcass of the helicopter, a Bell 412Epi purchased a few months ago, was identified by a Special Forces team, sent to an area made difficult to access due to thick vegetation.


Nothing is yet known about the cause of the accident, nor the health conditions of the survivors. Interviewed by the local newspaper “News room“, Brigadier Omar Khan, said this morning that the emergency signal received from the aircraft seems to suggest an emergency landing.

At the same time, Khan said that at the moment "there is no information demonstrating the presence of a flight of Venezuelan planes in the area." The helicopter disappeared in an area between Eteringbang and Arau, locations located west of the Esequibo river, in Essequibo Territory that Venezuela has recently decided to make a new state of the federation.
