A helicopter crashed in waters near Walker’s Cay, Abaco, earlier this morning, according to Minister of Tourism and Aviation Dionisio D’Aguilar.

“Initial reports are coming in that a helicopter departed, I think it’s a cay near to Walker’s Cay, at 2 a.m. and I guess shortly after takeoff it crashed,” D’Aguilar said.

“We’ve located the craft. It seems as if the seven passengers are still onboard so therefore submerged, but we can’t confirm anything yet.

“They’re attempting…to first of all go to the helicopter and retrieve any souls that are onboard and start the investigation.”
