Helicopter crashes in Casares throwing pilot down ravine

heli crash

A HELICOPTER has crashed into power cables between Manilva and Casares, throwing its pilot down a ravine.

Emergency services are attempting to retrieve the body of the pilot – 200 metres from the site of the crash – with the aid of another helicopter.

Power company workers discovered damaged power cables and helicopter debris in the Sierra Utera ridge at 8am this morning,  prompting them to call Guardia Civil.

Firefighters first attempted to retrieve the body on foot, but found the ravine made it impossible.

An investigation is now underway into the cause of the crash.
