Statement says that crash occurred as vehicle was landing in Tarbela.
A Pakistan Army officer was killed when a military helicopter on a routine night training mission crashed in Tarbela Pakistan on Monday, an official statement said.
The crash took place as the helicopter was landing in Tarbela, it said.
A lieutenant colonel of the Pakistan Army “embraced martyrdom” while four others escaped alive, the statement added, without mentioning whether they sustained injuries. The accident follows a string of crashes in recent months.
Two Pakistan Army pilots were killed earlier in February when their Mushak plane crashed during a training flight. Last August 12 people were killed when a helicopter belonging to the Army crashed in northwest Pakistan. An Mi-17 army helicopter crashed at a holiday resort in the picturesque hills of Gilgit killing seven people, including two foreign ambassadors, in May last year.
