Search continues for missing helicopter crew

The search continues for the bodies of the three missing crewmen from the Helimer 207 helicopter which crashed into the sea off the coast of Almeria on Thursday evening.

It is thought that the bodies could be in very deep waters and special robot devices are being brought in help with the search.

The helicopter crashed on Thursday evening during a routine Marine Rescue training exercise. One of the crew was found almost immediately and he is recovering in Torrecárdenas hospital. He suffered various cuts and bruises and hypothermia.

The missing crew members have been named as José Luis López Alcalá, the commander of the helicopter and a native of Granada, Kevin Holmes, the co-pilot, born in New Zealand, and Íñigo Vallejo García, a rescue specialist and native of Sevilla.
