UPDATE: Four bodies, all male, have been found following a tragic helicopter accident in Msikaba in the OR Tambo District. The bodies were found floating in a river gorge.

The aircraft is believed to be from Umhlanga in KwaZulu Natal. The bodies have not yet been recovered due to poor light. The recovery operation will continue at first light tomorrow...not sure how many occupants were in helicopter.....still awaiting more info.

Believed to be an R44 so max pacs would be 4 and reg is believed to be RXW. Weather was said to be extremely poor in that part of the country today and not good for flying. Sad indeed.
