Tel Aviv (JTA) — Two
members of the Israeli air
force were killed during a
helicopter rescue exercise in
southern Israel.
A preliminary finding by a
committee of investigation
found that a hoist attached
to the outside of the craft's
fuselage had suffered a
"technical malfunction"
that caused the cable on
which the men were
suspended to snap.
The two men plunged to
their deaths. One of the dead
men was identified as Cpl.
Assaf Rosenberg, 19, of
Petah Tikva. He was buried
in his hometown.
The name of the second
casualty had not yet been
released for publication, but
his family was notified.
The air force investigating
panel was appointed by the
air force commander, Maj.
Gen. Herzl Budinger.
In addition, the Israel
Defense Force chief of staff,
Lt. Gen. Ehud Barak, or-
dered reserve Brig. Gen.
Giora Zorea to undertake an
external investigation that
could provide any implica-
tions this could have for
similar exercises in other
IDF branches.
Gen. Zorea has been or-
dered to report back within
10 days, during which time
all high-risk training exer-
cises are to be halted
throughout the IDF.
The unit in which the
helicopter was involved is
part of an elite group of vol-
unteers that spends much of
its time in training that in-
volves the rescue of both
military personnel and
civilians, on the ground or at
Sea.
The unit's pilots and crew
are trained to operate in all
weather conditions and on
all terrains or on the sea.
The unit also operates
behind enemy lines, fre-
quently under fire, to rescue
downed pilots.
In many instances in
which the helicopter cannot
land, rescuers and
paramedics are lowered to
the ground by a cable
attached to a winch or crane,
which lifts them either alone
or with the people rescued,
sometimes strapped to stret-
chers.
A member of the same unit
was killed a month ago and
five other soldiers wounded
in the crash of a rescue
helicopter returning from a
stand-by operation during
an air raid on terrorist bases
in Lebanon.
