American helicopter window falls on Japanese school sports ground

US helicopter window falls off injures child in Okinawa

A window of a United States military transport helicopter on 13 December fell from the aircraft onto the ground of an elementary school in Japan's Okinawa Prefecture.

The Futenma base is surrounded by schools, hospitals and shops, and residents worry about air crashes.

The latest incident is likelyto stir greater frustration among the locals, who have expressed concern and anger over accidents and crime linked to the USA military presence on Okinawa.

The incident fueled anger and concerns among local residents, following a similar accident on Thursday, when an object that apparently fell off a USA military aircraft was found on the roof of a nursery located about 300 meters from the air station.

"This is a regrettable incident and we apologize for any anxiety it has caused the community", the U.S. Marine Corps said in a media release, adding it is investigating the cause in coordination with local authorities.

Shattered glass was also found at the site, while parents, anxious about their children, rushed to the school.

One 10-year-old boy, out of some 50 children who were assembled in the sports field, was slightly injured in the incident, Reuters reports, citing a prefecture official.

The boy is said to have suffered minor arm injuries in Tuesday's incident.

Okinawa Governor Takeshi Onaga has led the campaign to get the base off the island, while the central government has proposed moving it to a less populated part of the island called Henoko. Another helicopter belonging to the Futenma base crashed into a nearby university in 2004, injuring three USA crewmembers. In October, the Japanese Defense Ministry vowed to ground all flights by CH-53E transport helicopters in Okinawa for an "indefinite period", after one of the aircraft crashed on the island.
