An Airbus AS350 B3 helicopter carrying five people crashed at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (Subang Airport) in Petaling Jaya at 9.25 am this morning (24 March).

On social media, witnesses of the crash shared video footage believed to have been captured moments after the accident. In one clip, the helicopter was shown smoking in wreckage before its spinning blades came to a stop and rescuers rushed to the scene with fire extinguishers.

Reportedly two people were injured from the crash with one person suffering a broken leg and a head injury. The three others were unharmed.

Authorities say that the helicopter luckily did not catch fire when it crashed. The aircraft was said to have departed from Sungai Lembing in Pahang at 8.30 am and was on a private flight to its final destination in Subang.

An investigation into the cause of the crash will be conducted by the Transport Ministry’s Air Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB).

The incident follows a string of helicopter crashes that had recently occurred in the country.
