Narok Governor Samuel Tunai and three others on Saturday survived a Chopper crash in Eldamat Narok County.
The Governor was leaving for a funeral of the late Mzee Tombo Ole Sasai at Olenkipejus village in Melili, Narok County when the incident occurred.
The deceased was the father to late Narok Finance County Executive Committee (CEC) who was a member in Governor Tunai’s Cabinet.
Though it remains unclear what led to the helicopter mishap, witnesses said that the chopper tried to take off several times but was unable to.
“After taking off for the fifth time, it crash landed after a 100m distance,” a witness explained.
The Governor and the three others managed to escape unhurt but were rushed to hospital with a Red Cross ambulance for check up.
Area MCA says that the Governor is out of danger and that people should not worry.
The accident attracted a huge crowd as residents in the area tried to catch a glimpse of the chopper.
