by Neha Monga

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis escaped a potential accident when his helicopter suddenly took off as he was boarding it at a helipad in Alibaug on Friday afternoon.

According to Raigad’s acting Collector P.D. Malikner, the incident happened around 1.50 pm when Fadnavis was preparing to board the waiting helicopter.

“As the CM came near the door, the chopper suddenly took off, tilted sideways and hovered around 2-3 feet in the air… its rotating wings came very close to his head,” Malikner told IANS from the site.

However, an alert security personnel lunged forward and helped the Chief Minister escape injury from the chopper’s blades, Malikner added.
