TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) - Honduras' ruling party presidential candidate, Juan Hernandez, escaped unhurt after the helicopter in which he was traveling crashed on Saturday, a spokesman for his National Party said.
Hernandez was traveling with his wife and three members of his campaign team to a rally in the city of Juticalpa, 80 miles east of the capital, Tegucigalpa, when the helicopter crashed from a low altitude.
"Thanks to God that we are OK," the candidate said on Twitter.
