Helicopter crash in Malaga

The Intervention and Rescue Group Mountain Civil Guard has rescued the helicopter pilot body that crashed into a high voltage line in the municipality of Casares, in the province of Malaga last Saturday. 
The body has been located on a steep and inaccessible area, and even though it has not been identified so far, it seems to be to a male, so said the spokesman for the Provincial Fire Consortium of Malaga.
Members of the Guardia Civil have had to transfer the body to the Institute of Forensic Medicine for an autopsy and an investigation has started, said Andalucía’s Emergency 112 sources. It sems that the aircraft did not appear in the control towers of the airports of Malaga and Seville, so it is not clear where the flight originated. The aircraft is a small one and so far, a door, a window and a tail rotor have been found.
The incident took place about 8pm when a technician from the power grid alerted authorities when he found the charred remains of a helicopter in a mountainous area, two hundred meters away from the helicopter 
When Guardia Civil, CPB and local police from Casares and Manilva arrived, they found the lifeless body of the pilot about 200 meters away from the aircraft, making them think that he was thrown out at the moment of the collision. The death of the pilot has been confirmed at around 10am according to CPB. Being an area of difficult access, it has been necessary to use the Guardia Civil’s helicopter.
