These cocaine packages were left scattered across a Brazilian field after a helicopter believed to be operated by a narco gang crashed, killing two people onboard.
The helicopter, which was loaded with cocaine according to the news site G1, crashed on Brazil’s border with Paraguay near the town of Ponta Pora in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul yesterday (Wednesday, 20th October).
The Brazilian Airport Infrastructure Company (Infraero) reported that they had no records of the flight, which also suggests that it was a clandestine operation.
Not only did the crash result in countless packages of cocaine being scattered across the field but it also resulted in the death of two unidentified people who were on board the chopper.
As seen in the footage, the two passengers on board the flight were burnt to a crisp in the crash and the fire that followed.
The Department to Combat Organised Crime (Dracco) found that the crash occurred near a rural property 30 kilometres (19 mi) from Ponta Pora.
Riot police, municipal guards and investigators went to the site and the latter are now conducting an investigation into the incident.
No suspects have been named and it is not clear how much cocaine was on board the helicopter when it crashed.
No information on why the chopper crashed has been released.
