Raisi Chopper Crash Foul Play Or Technical Glitch?: Speculations Rise On Iran’s President’s Death

A Bell 212 helicopter carrying Iran's president and foreign minister crashed on Sunday, according to Iranian state media, as it flew through mountains in heavy fog.

The tragic crash claimed the lives of the Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Affairs Minister Amir Abdollahian and other officials travelling in the ill-fated helicopter.

The helicopter was carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, the country’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, the governor of Iran’s East Azerbaijan province and other officials and bodyguards, according to the state-run IRNA news agency.

Raisi was returning from a trip to Iran’s border with Azerbaijan earlier Sunday to inaugurate a dam with Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev, the news agency said.

The helicopter apparently crashed or made an emergency landing in the Dizmar forest between the cities of Varzaqan and Jolfa in Iran’s East Azerbaijan province, near its border with Azerbaijan, under circumstances that remain unclear.

Initially, Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi said the helicopter “was forced to make a hard landing due to the bad weather and fog.” #IranPresidentHelicopterCrash #RaisiDeath #RaisiDeathVideo #RaisiBodyFound #EbrahimRaisiCrashVideo #Iran #EbrahimRaisi #HelicopterCrash #Bell212 #IranianTragedy #Investigation #AccidentDetails #PublicSafety #RaisiDeath #HelicopterIncident #IranianPresident #EmergencyResponse #AviationSafety #BreakingNews #NewsUpdate ~PR.152~ED.194~GR.121~HT.96~
