Air ambulance carrying injured Indonesian envoy makes emergency landing in India


An air ambulance carrying the Indonesian envoy, who was injured in the Gilgit helicopter crash on Friday, made an emergency landing in India after his condition is said to have become critical, according to local media sources.

The Foreign Office said Ambassador Burhan Mohammad, who suffered 75% burns on his body in the crash, was being flown to his country when his condition worsened, a local media outlet reported.

The air ambulance took off from Islamabad at 2pm local time. The Netherlands ambassador was also flown out to his home country.

The decision to make an emergency landing was taken after communication with the Indonesian and Singapore governments during the flight. Pakistan had sought and arranged the air ambulance from Singapore.
