Around 5:30 p.m., the Secretary of Citizen Security, Pablo Vazquez, and the Head of Government of Mexico City, Martí Batres, confirmed that a helicopter from the private company Let’s Fly crashed on Imán Avenue, at the height of Antonio Delfín Madrigal Avenue, in the Coyoacán borough.

After the incident, it was reported that three occupants were on board the aircraft, Captain Armando Cervantes and two others, who died in the accident.

In this regard, the Coyoacán borough reported, on its X account, that it is in contact with federal and Mexico City authorities to address the disaster. Similarly, it explained that Roberto Sánchez Lazo, acting head of the office, will follow up on the matter.

On the other hand, MILENIO was able to corroborate that the aircraft crashed on a property that functioned as a mechanical workshop which suffered damage; however, after the incident, a water tanker from the Mexico City firefighters’ group arrived to extinguish the fire.

In this regard, Pablo Vázquez assured that there was no one on the property, so the only victims of the incident are those who were on board the aircraft.
