The Mexican Navy has confirmed that the ‘Black Kawk’ helicopter involved in the arrest of drug trafficker Rafael Caro Quintero, and crashed on Friday in the state of Sinaloa, was not shot down, but that the event was an accident.

Mexican authorities confirmed on Friday the death of fourteen people after a Navy helicopter crashed in the state of Sinaloa, in northwestern Mexico. Contradicting the first version of the authorities, the president of the country, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, confirmed that the aircraft was carrying out the mission of “supporting those who executed the arrest warrant against Rafael Caro Quintero”.
