Very sad indeed...100 Mil Rand paid for it,also down the drain..that's the new EC135 they have just bought..in Feb 2015

Again proven even though the helicopter had wire strike equipment on it was fruitless in saving the helicopter.

The picture on news shows very high vertical impact speed not survivable.
