Crashed Helicopter

The helicopter crash within the Opebi area of Ikeja, Lagos State on Friday, August 28, 2020, claimed two lives.

The helicopter, which came in from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, crashed into a building at 16A, Salvation, Opebi Road around 12 pm.

The Director-General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, said two men died on impact.

The third occupant of the helicopter, also a man, was rescued and taken to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).

The owner of the property on which the helicopter crashed, Mrs. Comfort Adeniyi Johnson, was said to be all alone at home reading her Bible when the unexpected happened.

The nonagenarian was profuse in thanking God for saving her life.

A widow Mrs. Oluyemisi Olugbode 77, whose property was also affected, said she was grateful to God because there was no one in her house when the crash occurred.

A vehicle parked inside the building was also damaged on impact, but no one on the ground was affected.

Recovery operation at the scene by LASEMA was done with other agencies including the Lagos State Fire, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), and the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).

The Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) recovered the black box of the helicopter and commenced investigations to determine what caused the crash.
