The helicopter carrying Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, along with three other people, had to make an emergency landing due to inclement weather and low visibility resulting from the dense fog in the area. The helicopter landed safely in Ukiniyam near the Erode district in Tamil Nadu on Wednesday morning. Reports confirm that the helicopter took off 40 minutes later after the visibility improved in the area. It is to be noted that the spiritual leader was on his way to attend an event in Tamil Nadu when the helicopter had to make an emergency landing.
The helicopter reportedly took from Bengaluru and was heading towards Tirupur in Tamil Nadu. The three people besides Ravi Shankar on the private helicopter were his assistants and the pilot handling the operations. The emergency landing occurred at around 10:30 am, with the helicopter taking off approximately an hour later.
