During an aerial application flight, as the helicopter was making the standard turn after finishing a section, the engine on the right stopped. At this point, the pilot increased the speed of the other engine and tried to to fly out over a cultivated part. The pilot attempted a forced landing on a dirt road, but this was not achieved by the aircraft and, a little traversed, the pilot landed on heavily soaked ground covered with water. After a few meters of "rolling", the aircraft sank, sinking on the soaked ground, then the rotor blades that were still rotating reached the ground, crashed and flew away, and then the helicopter tilted to the right. The aircraft was significantly damaged.
