Survived in Mali, perished at home: in France they told about the tragedy during the landing


The Minister of Armed Forces of France Florence Parley confirmed the information that the contingent of French troops suffered losses during maneuvers in the northern Pyrenees - in the south-west of the country.


According to the French military, the tragic incident occurred about two weeks ago. However, they decided not to immediately publicize it.

It is known that military personnel performed a flight aboard the Eurocopter EC725 Caracal helicopter.

Florence Parley:

Two of our servicemen carried out the parachute-free landing. They fell and fell to the ground. We are now figuring out all the circumstances of what happened.

Ms. Parley was pretty much criticized for such words. After all, the tragedy occurred, as already noted, about two weeks ago, and the minister says that the circumstances are still being clarified.

Meanwhile, French sources close to the military note that the tragedy occurred due to a poorly fixed launching device. We are talking about the rope, which descended the landing. It is added that the landing was carried out in a strong wind, due to which there was a strong swing, and the military personnel fell from a relatively high altitude. It is noted that the "overload" of the cable could play its role.

The landing site was supposed to be a special site south of the city of Biscaross in the Department of Landa.

According to some reports, the dead soldiers of the French army some time ago returned to France from Mali, where they participated in the anti-terrorist operation. It turns out that the soldiers returned unscathed from the anti-terrorist front, but died during routine exercises in their homeland.

                        I am sure - you often heard this in your address, so you know what you're talking about. I’m also sure that you did not become an astronaut.

    At the time, in Somalia, it was from the ranger who had fallen from the rope that “everything went head over heels” later called the “fall of the Black Hawk”
    Since then, many systems have been invented to ensure the almost complete safety of such a landing. But to their great surprise, they did not receive much distribution.

      Why reinvent the wheel, everything has long been invented. Ask any climber. I do not think that the equipment of the special forces is worse. Tragedies happen, fact. But either by negligence, or by coincidence.

      Along the way, the French Legion suffered losses or someone helped them .. They don’t worry about these guys especially, they collect them from all over the world
      Well, I also join in condolences, maybe there were guys from Russia there .. They made their choice and all Armies have such losses ..

    Why was it necessary to "sculpt" such a "pathos" heading? It's about the incident. Unfortunately, this happens everywhere, because life "is not so much beautiful as amazing." It is enough to limit ourselves to an informational message in the form. Professional reporters are able to do this (more precisely, they should be able to). It is impossible to understand those who speculate on this topic. If you want to be respected, respect others.
