Authorities yesterday found the body of the co-pilot of a police helicopter that plunged into a Yala dam on Monday.

Published on November 16, 2007



The body of Pol Captain Phichet Kham-ai was found floating around 500 metres away from the area where the helicopter crashed into the Bang Lang Dam. The corpse has been sent to Wat Khoke Samarnkul in Songkhla's Hat Yai district - Phichet's home district - for cremation.

Navy and Marine Police divers are still searching for the bodies of two other missing crew members.

A Marine Police source said the search was difficult and slow because the water was turbid and cold, and there was bamboo underwater near the wreckage.
