    Can't they deploy more than one helicopter? Is that all available at the moment?

    GC For your kind information the rest of the helicopters are reserved for VIP transport a far more crucial task.

    Remember No politicians:= No Sri Lanka.

    Grow up people, you cannot even go to the toilet without politics.? Shame on you. Do you really know how many helicoptors needed to be deployed? Think sensibly, that's more or less the same even in developed countries. For example, i remember there was a recent rescue operation which happened in Wales, UK to save some fishing boats capsized due to stormy weather. They had only one heli for that whole operation. Don't they have more? Or reserved for royal family?
