A military helicopter carrying Mexico’s interior minister and the governor of the southern state of Oaxaca crashed but a minister who was traveling survived unhurt and two people were killed instantly.
The minister was surveying the land in a special tour from the top to see the damages caused by an earthquake earlier in the day, but the senior officials survived.
Interior Minister Navarete told TV network Televisa that he and Oaxaca Governor Alejandro Murat were not seriously harmed in the accident that happened as the helicopter was attempting to land.
The ministry issued a statement on Twitter saying two people on the ground were killed when the helicopter came down. The officials were surveying the aftermath of a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that rocked the rural.
