It was not equipped with a winch, and so could not lift the soldiers to safety. âThat was a big mistake, but it all comes down to, I guess, funding and money and people trying to cut corners,â Corporal Hale said. âItâs just a shame that it takes lives to get people to pay attention to this.â Eventually the soldiers were lifted out by US Blackhawk helicopters.
