A helicopter carrying LuLu Group chairman Yusuff Ali M A, his wife and two other passengers, along with the two pilots, had to make a “precautionary landing” in Kochi, India, yesterday morning.
“Yusuff Ali M A, currently in Kerala, was on a short trip from his home in Kochi to visit a relative at nearby hospital. Due to the sudden deterioration of the weather conditions and heavy rains, the experienced pilots decided to make precautionary landing at a safe place to prevent any risk to the life of the passengers or the public at large,” V Nandakumar, director of communications at the LuLu Group International head office, said in a statement.
All passengers and crew underwent necessary medical checkup and are safe, the statement added.
