The businessman was in Kochi and was traveling to VPS Lakeshore hospital
The Lulu Group Chairman MA Yusuff Ali along with his wife and other family members were traveling from Kadavanthra in Kochi to VPS Lakeshore hospital when the incident happened. Due to the rain and bad weather, the pilot of the chopper in which he was traveling, decided to make a forced landing to ensure safety of all passengers but it turned out to be a rough landing on a marshy area in Panangad. Fortunately, all passengers were immediately rushed to the hospital and so far no casualties have been reported. A spokesperson from the hospital has confirmed that they are all doing well and that they are under observation. Recently Yusuff Ali was honoured with Abu Dhabi’s top civilian award.
