Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter has been tasked to help find a helicopter that is believed to have crashed somewhere in the Kyogle area.

Details of incident are still not fully known, but it is believed that a Robinson helicopter has crash-landed somewhere in the vicinity of Kyogle, after the pilot reported the incident on his mobile phone.

It is also understood that mobile contact with the pilot was not able to be re-established after the initial call.  Therefore, details of injuries – if any – are unknown.

“No further information is available at this stage,” a rescue helicopter spokesman said.
