Helicopter crashed with the loss of all 3 POB after contacting powerlines.  Weather conditions were reported as low visibility.  Some reports say “AgustaWestland helicopter” and this probably means an AW109, given the Turkmen Border Guard are known to operate them.  AW139 and AW101 helicopters are also operated by the local military.
