01-Dec-18 HL9419 Kamov Ka32 Guri, Korea (1F)

Crashed into river when hovering and taking up water for firefighting operation for a fire on Mount Youngchuk.  The rescue services said the helicopter crashed into the Han River near Gangdong Bridge around 11:20 a.m. The pilot and copilot were able to exit the aircraft immediately prior to impact, but the mechanic was trapped in the wreckage and later died

Once source is quoting the registration as HL9419 on the basis that they think the three digit code on the engine cover of the recovered helicopter in this image is “613” but we cannot be sure of that and thus cautious of this registration
