A helicopter carrying at least 20 people crashed in Sierra de la Huasteca Baja, in the Mexican state of Hidalgo, while attempting to land on Wednesday. On board was Éric Cisneros, Secretary of the Government of Veracruz state.
A video posted on social media showed the Mil Mi-17​ helicopter, which is owned by the Secretariat of the Navy, attempting to land before losing control and spiraling into a nearby clearing. As it roughly sets down, the aircraft's rotors get shredded by impacting the ground, sending pieces flying in every direction.
However, Cisneros later tweeted that he was ok and there were "no human losses."
"We continue to help, even with minor injuries," he said. The helicopter was touring areas recently hit by Hurricane Grace, which when it hit the coastal Veracruz over the weekend as a powerful Category 3 storm. At least eight people were killed by the storm, including in mudslides and other disasters caused by its previous impact on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula to the east.
​According to La Jornada, the people wounded in the crash were taken to the Regional Hospital of Metepec, Hidalgo. However, the number of injured people was not given.
