Indonesian chopper pilot saved days after crash

JAKARTA--The pilot of an Indonesian army helicopter has been rescued alive days after the aircraft crashed on Borneo island, an official said Monday, but four other crew members are still missing.

The injured airman was discovered along with the wreckage of the Bell 412 helicopter Sunday, three days after the aircraft went down as it was transporting supplies to a remote army post near the Malaysian border.

"The pilot had to be lifted with a rope because the crash location was difficult to reach," army spokesman Sabrar Fadhilah told AFP, adding he had been taken to hospital for treatment.

But four other crew members on board at the time of the accident had not been found with the wreckage in mountainous terrain in North Kalimantan province, Fadhilah said, adding rescuers were still searching for them.
