The syringe factory and nearby homes in Pedro Juan Caballero City went up in flames when the UH-1H utility helicopter plunged to the ground on Nov. 21, but no one was seriously injured, according to Paraguay news reports.
As part of the efforts to determine the cause of the crash, an investigation team in Paraguay has requested technical documents for the UH-1H, which was donated by Taiwan to its only diplomatic ally in South America, according to the MND.
"We are deeply concerned about the accident." the MND said in a statement on Sunday. "In light of our friendship, we will provide logistics and other support, depending on Paraguay's needs."
