Antarctica Helicopter Crash

December 3, 2013 by  

Antarctica Helicopter Crash, Rescuers were in a race against time Monday to save three people badly injured in a helicopter crash in Antarctica, officials said.

The pilot and two passengers were forced to make an emergency landing while returning from a scientific mission to survey a penguin colony Sunday night, the Australian Antarctic Division said.

Stranded more than 170 miles from the nearest major outpost, the casualties were being treated by the crew of a second helicopter which was flying with them in tandem.

The Australian Antarctic Division, which chartered the helicopter, said it now needs to find a gap in the weather so it can land a suitable aircraft and transfer the wounded to Davies Station, its main base in Antarctica around 172 miles away.
