India Armed Forces head among 13 dead in helicopter crash Updated: 2021-12-09 07:50:03 KST

13 people were killed on Wednesday in India, when the military helicopter they were travelling in crashed.
Among the dead, the head of the country's armed forces, General Bipin Rawat.
The crash occurred as the helicopter was en route from an air force base to a hillside military college in the southern state of Tamil Nadu.
Only one of the 14 people on board the military aircraft survived, and is being treated at a hospital.
Also killed in the deadly crash was General Rawat's wife, who was traveling alongside her husband.
Rawat was appointed as India's first Chief of Defense Staff by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2019, a position that was set up with the aim of integrating the nation's three military services.
The cause of the accident is currently under investigation.
