A video showing how a helicopter carrying Narok Governor Samwel Ole Tunai crashed on Saturday has emerged on social media.
The 59 seconds footage captured through a phone camera shows the green-colored aircraft struggling to take off from a wheat farm as villagers watch from a distance.
It then moves from one side of the field to the other before changing direction while flying low and appears to have taken off but it goes down moments later.
Tunai and four others including Narok East MP Ken Kiloku and the pilot survived the Saturday afternoon crash that happened at Melili area, Narok North sub-County. They were rushed to a nearby health facility for check-up.
Tunai and his team were flying back to Narok town after attending the burial of the late Mzee Tombo Ole Sasai at Olenkipejus.
The cause of the helicopter mishap remains unclear but the aircraft is believed to have developed mechanical problems.
Speaking to a local media house after the incident, Governor Tunai said he was headed to Nairobi for a check-up although he felt okay.
