I am starting this petition to raise a voice to fix a flaw in the system and initiate an investigation what went wrong with the following article. It can happen with any family across Australia. Mr Raj was a great family man and brave dad who unfortunately died saving his daughter at surfer's beach near Bateman's bay.

As per Canberra Time article on 9th July 2021 titled "Father Raj Kishore drowned as Westpac rescue helicopter sat grounded by CASA | The Canberra Times | Canberra, ACT" his life could have been saved had the Westpac rescue helicopter arrived at place of incident.

Instead the rescue helicopter and its crew sat grounded and helpless just 17 km from the South Coast beach where a Canberra man drowned trying to save his nine-year-old daughter on Monday.

In a tragic set of circumstances, Westpac Lifesaver 23 was grounded by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority due to safety paperwork issues the same day its crew received a call to help rescue Department of Immigration IT consultant Raj Kishore.

CASA defended its decision to ground the helicopter and insisted the rescue team could have flown to the rescue scene under "mercy flight" provisions. But the helicopter operator, Helistar, insisted it had asked for an exemption to fly rescue missions and had been refused.

Seeking you support in this mission.
