A picture circulating in social media claiming that an individual had driven a car off a cliff on Anderson Air Force base has caused quite a stir as the incident allegedly occurred on the same day of the security breach which resulted in the death of the Andersen gate crasher.

The picture showed an HSC-25 Helicopter reportedly flying over a cliff line with the text reading, “Vehicle just drove off the cliff at Anderson, possible suicide. Waiting for inbound Medivac. Was about 125-foot drop, vehicle rolled multiple times. He’s jacked up but alive.”

PNC reached out to Andersen Air Force Base Public Affairs Officer Zachary Bumpus to confirm the authenticity of the report. However, it appears that at this time it can not be substantiated.

Bumpus said: “I can not confirm or deny that the incident occurred on the base yesterday afternoon.”

He said HSC-25 is based out of AAFB and does conduct training on a regular basis.
