Four people die in helicopter crash in United Arab Emirates

A helicopter rescue mission in the United Araba Emirates led to four people on board the helicopter losing their lives when it crashed.

The rescue operation was taking place in Jebel Jais where there is the longest zip line in the world when the helicopter caught fire on the mountains of Ras al-Khaimah .

This zip line is a tourist attraction which was opened to the public in February and forms part of an adventure park which has now been closed following this tragedy until the necessary investigations are carried out.
