Three KNP officials were aboard the helicopter when it experienced engine failure and power loss, forcing the pilot to land in emergency. It is believed that they were helping an on-ground game capture team in search of 2 missing rhinos.

The helicopter landed uneventfully and everyone aboard remained safe.

Managing executive of KNP Glenn Phillips, “We are grateful that our employees are all safe and no one was hurt; even grateful that the game capture team managed to recover the animals and ensure their safe return to the park.”
