Watch: Mexican Navy Mi-17 Helicopter Crashes Shortly After Takeoff

Mexican Navy Mi-17 Helicopter lost control and crashes shortly after takeoff on a football field, resulting in multiple serious injuries.

The aircraft was reported to have 20 people on board when it crashed in Agua Blanca, Mexico, a small coastal town.

Among those on board, the aircraft when it crashed was reported to be the minister of the interior of the State of Veracruz.

A video from social networks shows the helicopter falling on the field after the loss of control by pilots.

This is the third Mi-17 crash in Mexico after the October 2018 incident that left one crew member dead and the May 2019 accident that killed seven people.

No cause for the crash has been reported.

The Mexican military reportedly operates 22 of the Mi-17 helicopters.

The aircraft involved in the accident may have been from the Mexican 1st Air Mobility, Observation and Transport Naval Air Squadron Gulf of Mexico Naval Air Force, with their headquarters in Tuxpan, Veracruz at Tampico Naval Air Base.
