Man sliced to death by helicopter that came to rescue him (video)

A man who survived a helicopter crash was sliced to death by the blades of another helicopter when the aircraft arrived to rescue him during a rescue mission last Sunday.

The victim's own helicopter crashed in a remote part of the southwestern Cauca District in Colombia and he and another man were stranded in the hillside for seven days after their craft broke down with technical issues. They had managed to survive for the week before another helicopter was sent out to find them and retrieve their crashed helicopter, which had been carrying valuable equipment.

There had been four successful visits by a rescue chopper to retrieve equipment. But as the chopper arrived on the fifth rescue mission the aircraft flipped over and the blade sliced the man, killing him.

The horrific moment was captured on video. It shows two technicians standing next to the remains of their downed helicopter, waving their hands to direct the rescuing helicopter safely to the ground. The victim, Ivan Andrés López Londoño, can be seen in white with his arms in the air as the black helicopter descends. Suddenly, the aircraft tips to the side and rolls over, with López Londoño hit by the rotating blades just out of shot.

López Londoño, who reportedly worked as a maintenance manager for the helicopter company, died at the scene. The pilot suffered a wrist injury and bruising when the helicopter overturned, and was transferred to hospital.

Local authorities have launched an investigation to establish the cause of the accident.
