The fatal crash of a helicopter that was delivering aid to stranded Yazidis in Iraq and evacuating some of the refugees from the Sinjar mountains injured a New York Times correspondent, among others.
Alissa J. Rubin “apparently suffered a concussion, at least one broken wrist and possibly some broken ribs but was conscious,” the New York Times said. Rubin serves as the New York Times' Paris bureau chief and was covering the situation in Iraq.
