St. Johns (Canada), Mar.15 (ANI): The damaged fuselage of a downed helicopter that claimed the lives of 17, has been found on the silt and gravel of the Atlantic Ocean floor.
Investigators said on Saturday that it was largely intact.
Cougar Helicopters owned the Sikorsky S-92. Investigators recovered various debris and parts of the chopper and personal belongings.
After wading through deep, murky waters, a remote-controlled camera confirmed they had found the fuselage, the Canadian Press reports.
Mike Cunningham, lead investigator with the Transportation Safety Board, said investigators hope that same camera will determine whether any bodies are still inside the helicopter. (ANI)
