Helicopter Carrying Politicians Nosedives After Power Line Collision

Two politicians and an adviser fell to the ground in a helicopter on Wednesday after their pilot struck power lines in southeastern Brazil.

Cell phone video captured the harrowing scene as the helicopter struck transmission lines and lost power and crashed in an uncontrolled nosedive, the Daily Mail reported.

The helicopter crashed in a swampy area near a soccer field in the town of Engenheiro Caldas. A downed power line started a fire in the nearby brush.

All four people on board the helicopter – a member of the Brazilian National Congress, a deputy mayor, a press secretary and the pilot – survived the wreckage.

Congressman Hercílio Diniz was able to exit the wreck and was hospitalized as a precaution.

David Barraso, deputy mayor of the city of Governador Valadares, suffered a fractured rib and a collapsed lung and was taken to intensive care.

Pilot Fabiano Rufino also suffered a collapsed lung and is in a hospital in stable condition. Press spokesman Luciano Viana escaped with minor injuries and is set to be released soon.

The Mail reported that the helicopter was about to land on the soccer field for a campaign appearance by Diniz, who is running for re-election.

The Sun reported that the helicopter’s collision with power lines caused a power outage in nearby communities.
