Copter crash: Body of third victim found

KUCHING: The body of Henry Loh, 42, one of three passengers onboard the ill-fated helicopter that crashed in rural Sarawak on Friday, has been recovered.

Loh's body was sighted just after daybreak Sunday and brought onshore at about 8.30am, according to a local community leader.

"His body was taken to the public health clinic immediately," the community leader told The Star.

Loh was the third and last passenger found dead. His body was found at Pulau Triso, where a helicopter rotor blade was retrieved Saturday.

The architecture firm employee's family members are on their way to Sebuyau, about 150km from here.

The only survivor of the crash was the pilot, who swam four hours to safety on Friday.

Meanwhile, one victim - Siti Khuzaimah Anuar, who was engaged to be married at the end of this year - will be laid to rest Sunday.-
