SHAH ALAM: Two men were slightly injured after their light helicopter crashed in a vacant plot of land in the Port Klang Free Trade Zone (PKFZ) in Pulau Indah, near here, today.

Selangor Fire and Rescue Department director Norazam Khamis said pilot Kharudin Dahlan, 73, and his assistant Moithu Kutti Mohamad, 53, suffered injuries to the left hand and minor bruises in the 10 am incident.
