The helicopter crashed during mustering operations and was found on the edge of a lake by a ground mustering party. The pilot received head injuries and has no recollection of the event. Ground witness marks indicate that the helicopter was travelling rearwards when the right skid dug into the ground. This upset the helicopter and caused the rotor blades to strike the ground.
