People are worried about the safety of President Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, who were on board during the accident. The bad weather, like heavy fog, is making it hard for rescue teams to find them.

This sad event reminds people of a similar incident in India years ago. Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy, also known as YSR, disappeared in a helicopter crash in 2009 over the Nallamala forests. Just like President Raisi, YSR was a well-known leader loved by many. Surprisingly, Ebrahim Raisi and his companions were riding a US-manufactured Bell 212 helicopter, while the chopper that killed YSR also happened to be a Bell 430 helicopter. The uncertainty and sadness surrounding these incidents show how fragile life can be, especially for important figures like political leaders.

As the search for President Raisi and Foreign Minister Amir-Abdollahian continues, people all over the world are hoping for their safe return. These events remind us of the uncertainties in life and the impact of such losses on a country. When the news of YSR’s death broke out on Telugu channels, many people suffered heart aches and it set the whole nation mourning for more than a week due to the shock.
