"We'll Learn From Tragedy" (Sarawak Copter Crash)

Lesson Learned Posted by Hello


Malaysia will always strive to improve its search and rescue capability as it did after the Highland Towers tragedy about a decade ago when it set up the SMART team, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said.

The Prime Minister said perhaps there was something that could be learnt from the recent helicopter crash in Sarawak which killed seven people.

“If there are suggestions, I hope those who were involved in the rescue work could provide some ideas as to how it could be done better,” he told reporters here yesterday. Abdullah said he felt sad over the tragedy and extended his condolences to the family members of the victims.
