An examiner in the ongoing national examinations has died after being hit by helicopter blades in a village in Ijara, Garissa. The examiner who is a deputy head teacher at Masalani died on the spot after being hit in the head by the blades of the chopper. Witnesses said he was hit by the rear blade of the chopper as he disembarked. “Normally, the rear blade is not visible to laymen when a chopper is on and is always advisable to approach the chopper from the front side,” said one pilot. Kenya Defence Forces said the Kenya Air Force multipurpose Helicopter model Mi-171E crashed in Buna, Wajir.
