Three Soldiers fall from Helicopter during Practice Drill

Advanced light helicopter

Three Indian Army Soldiers were badly injured during a practice drill ahead of the Army Day on January 15 in the national capital.

According to media reports, the mishap happened while the chopper was hovering in the air and the jawans were coming down to the ground by gripping the rope that was used for the rehearsal and attached to the Advanced Light Helicopter "Dhruv".

A video shows two soldiers sliding down the rope hanging from Dhruv helicopter. The incident took place when the jawans descended from a helicopter with a rope which snapped - plummeting the jawans to the ground, as reported by Zee News. The slithering operations, which involve troops slipping down a rope usually from a helicopter, is a method used to drop troops in an area of action when a chopper cannot land. None of the soldiers suffered any serious injuries, the Indian Army confirmed. The jawans accidentally fell off after a rope slipped off ALH Dhruv helicopter during a rehearsal for Army Day.

Blaze Car Park Could Be Demolished
A WREXHAM couple were told they would not be getting their auto back after a major fire engulfed a multi-storey parking facility. The horses were moved to safety inside the arena. "We are extremely thankful to the emergency services for their efforts".

An official from the Indian Army said that all the 3 jawans are safe and further investigation is underway.

"Slithering operations have been suspended till the cause of accident is known".

The "Army Day" is held on January 15 every year in honour of Lieutenant General KM Kariappa, the first Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army.
