13 Canadians slightly hurt as convoy vehicles collide
"Two separate crashes killed eight soldiers and injured 27 others Sunday in southern and eastern Afghanistan, including 13 Canadians .
The worst accident involved a coalition CH-47 Chinook helicopter, which crashed in the Shahjoy district of Zabul province, roughly 270 kilometres northeast of Kandahar.
The chopper, which was carrying 22 U.S. service members at the time, suffered a sudden, unexplained loss of power and crashed near the main highway to Kabul."
This is the last thing this world needs. More people dieing in Iraq. Poor soldiers, poor helicopter too, there goes 8 unsaleable lives and a $500,000 chopper into the pits of hell. Its especially strange how it just lost its power. These things are supposed to be able to go through a hurricane for gods sake and they stall and crash because of power loss? If you ask me that is messed up. This is not the first time this has happened either. The engineers behind these choppers need to get their act together in this reporters opinion.
Until next time,
Lemery the King.
