A minister in Madagascar, swam for 12 hours to reach land, after the crash of the helicopter, in which he was riding off the northeast coast of the island.
The Minister of Police, Serge Gelly, was among the survivors, who swam for 12 hours to reach land.
Gili, 57, appeared in a video posted on social media, exhausted and lying in a chair, after he managed to swim and save himself. “It’s not time for me to die,” Gili said, noting that his body was very cold but in good health.
Serge Gili became a minister after a cabinet reshuffle last August after serving in the police force for three decades.
