MANILA, Philippines The Air Force has ruled out material failure or aircraft defect as the cause of the helicopter crash in Marawi last month that left two persons wounded.

Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Enrico Canaya said investigators did not find evidence indicating that the mishap was caused by material factor.

"The continuing investigation shifted to other contributory factors that affected human intervention. The investigation is still ongoing," Canaya said in a text message.

Canaya said they are expecting another report from investigators.
