An Oaxaca State Government McDonnell Douglas MD 600N was en route from Hospital Regional de Putla Villa de Guerrero, Oaxaca, Mexico to Hospital General de Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico when it crashed with four people aboard.

The crash was located five miles from Oaxaca. The preliminary report lists Captain Guillermo Chavez Medina, the aeromedical Paul Hector Vicente, less than 24 hours old surname Martinez Sanchez (patient) and the latter’s father, Pedro Martinez, approximately 20 years old.

The Medevac helicopter/air ambulance was transporting the infant who was less than 24 hours old.

Bad weather or mechanical failure may have been behind the crash in Guerrero Cuilapan.

Emergency services have cordoned off the area prior to investigation.
