Three Soldiers fall from Helicopter during Practice Drill

Watch 3 soldiers fall off chopper during Army Day rehearsal inquiry ordered

Three jawans from the army were injured during rehearsals for Army Day parade in New Delhi.

A video that has gone viral on social media shows a total of four soldiers sliding down the chopper as part of the slithering operation using a rope which is attached to the aircraft. PTI reported that all exercises requiring security forces to slither down to the drop zone have been suspended by the Army.

The injury to the three soldiers is not "life threatening", and they are undergoing treatment. While two army men successfully complete the drill, the third one falls straight to the ground, as the rope slips off the chopper.

According to a report in India Tv, the jawans were rushed to the hospital immediately. If detected by the enemy, the helicopters with soldiers dangling from the rope, are an easy target and the effort always is to avoid such situations, sources said.

The mishap happened on January 9 when the soldiers were practising the drills for the Army Day parade to be held on January 15. "An investigation is in progress", said an Army officer.

The Army Day commemorates the day when General (later Field Marshal) KM Carriappa took over the command of Army from General Sir FRR Bucher, the last British Commander-in-Chief in 1949 and became the first Commander-in-Chief of Indian Army post Independence.
