Survivors 'unlikely' in Nepal chopper crash, says US military

A US Marine Corps UH-1Y Huey prepares to take off with supplies at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, Nepal, May 5, 2015The US military said Friday it did not expect to find any survivors after locating the wreckage of a helicopter that went missing with eight people on board in earthquake-devastated Nepal. “I can confirm that we have located the wreckage… it is unlikely there are any survivors,” said John Wissler, commander of the joint task force investigating the disappearance, three days after the chopper vanished while delivering aid in a mountainous region. The crashed aircraft was spotted in a remote forest around 70 kilometres (40 miles) northeast of Kathmandu, according to Nepalese army official Major General Binoj Basnet. Basnet told AFP troops had reached the crash site on foot and two choppers, including a US military helicopter, had managed to land in the mountainous region after strong winds had kept them circling the wreckage.
