Canadian company asked to head Puebla helicopter crash investigation

Experts from the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Puebla and Civil Aeronautics are continuing with the expert report in the area of the plane crash in which the governor of Puebla, Martha Érika Alonso, her husband Rafael Moreno Valle and three other people perished.

The Government of Mexico has announced that a team of experts from Canada will support the December 24 investigation of the helicopter crash that killed the governor of Puebla, Martha Erika Alonso and her husband and senator, Rafael Moreno Valley.

The Transportation Security Council of Canada says they will send two experts to join a third party that is already an active part of the investigation in Mexico.

“In this way, the Government of Mexico complies with the commitment assumed by the President of the Republic, Andrés Manuel López Obrador,” the office said in a press release.

López Obrador reiterated that before this “tragedy”, nothing will be hidden “absolutely nothing”and that for there to be no suspicions, that an independent body from abroad is being called upon to present a ruling.

The Canadian delegation that will support the investigation will be integrated by Jimmy Cancino, accredited representative and the researcher Nora Vallée, explained the agency.

Iván Granciano, from Pratt & Whitney, a manufacturer of the turbines of the fallen helicopter and a participatant in the investigation, will be joined by technical adviser, confirmed the Mexican transport company.

The investigators will arrive from Canada at the Puebla airport to begin their work at the accident site.
