Black Box Of Crashed Bristow Helicopter Still Missing- NEMA

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Thursday said it was still searching for the Black Box of the ill-fated chopper that plunged into the Lagos Lagoon on Wednesday.

Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, the South-West Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the agency, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

Farinloye said that the agency’s rescue team was still on the lookout for the black box of the ill-fated Bristow Helicopter.

NAN reports that the black box is a piece of equipment on an aircraft that records what happens on a flight and can be used to discover the cause of accidents.

He , however, confirmed that the agency had recovered the two remaining bodies of the victims, which brought the total number of the dead bodies recovered to six, with six survivors.

Farinloye who said that the bodies were recovered from the Lagoon at 10.55a.m., attributed it to the joint efforts of the agency’s rescue team and the canoe operators.

“We have to employ the services of local canoe operators who know the terrain.

“About 40 canoe operators were deployed to the scene of the incident and we succeeded in recovering the two remaining bodies at about 10:55 a.m,” he said.
