Hope of finding survivors from missing helicopter enroute to Kuching from Betong yesterday is getting slimmer.

Latest report indicated a body has been founded and but details including identity of the body – female or male has yet to be confirmed by the relevant authorities.

Helicopter crashes are not uncommon in Sarawak. At least 20 had perished in a similar incident over the last three decades.

Recent helicopter crashed was in 2012 killed three people onboard. Rather miraculously the copter pilot Reco Steger, 35, a german, survived the crash.
