Three out of the four survivors in the helicopter crash at the West Cape Three Points in the Western Region last Thursday have been discharged from the hospital.

The Director of Air-traffic Services of the Ghana Aviation Authority (GCAA), Mr Albert Taylor, told the Ghana News Agency last Saturday that one of the survivors, who was in a critical condition and flown to the 37 Military Hospital in Accra, was responding to treatment.

The missing person out of the eight involved in the plane crash has not been found yet but some helicopters have joined the search party to look for him.

Mr Taylor said the relatives of those who lost their lives in the crash had been informed about the tragic incident. However, he declined to mention their names.

The accident claimed three lives when an Ivorian registered aircraft, TUHAA, which was contracted by Lukoil Company to transport workers to the oil rigs on the Jubilee Oilfield, crashed into the sea.
