Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Commission (KNKT) have arrived at Pondok Cabe airfield in Tangerang to investigate the helicopter crash that killed two technicians earlier Thursday. The crash site, located in front of Pelita Air's service hangar, was cordoned off and under police guard. Journalists were not allowed to enter the area. The bodies of the victims, Ahmad Suparja (25) and Sri Setyobudi (42) were taken to Fatmawati Hospital in South Jakarta. The pilot of the twin engine Super-Puma helicopter, Rohman Hadi (50), and a technician who was inside the chopper, HM Hardi (52), survived, but were still suffering from shock. South Jakarta Police chief Sr. Comr. Chairul Anwar said at the crash site the police had yet to figure out the chronology of the incident. "What we know so far is they were doing a routine maintenance check. They started up the engine and the pilot began to lift the chopper when it suddenly collapsed," Chairul told journalists, as quoted by tempointeraktif.com. He said the helicopter's blades had sliced through the two technicians. "It's quite severe, they were cut in two," he said. (dre)

I was there when it happen. I heard a loud 'bang' and then suddenly there was a commotion.

I saw peoples running outside shouting "Super Puma jatuh, Super Puma jatuh"
This is the furthest that I can go. I really am not brave enough to go any further.

The main rotor blade of the helicopter slices into the two technicians situated nearby. You can see clearly the bodies of the two of them. One of them is decapitated and the head flung almost 100m from the accident location.

Not sure who this is but later on some minister show up to know the matter first hand.

The area is being cordon until further notices.
