Iranian state television pausing all regular programming Sunday morning to share prayers for the country's president. President Ibrahim Raisi began his morning in Azerbaijan to commemorate the opening of a new joint project, but now his exact whereabouts and condition are unknown after the helicopter carrying Kim and Iran's foreign minister came crashing down. 40 Immediate response Teams are searching the region now, but the weather conditions are very bad and the accessibility of the location is also very difficult. Crews are doing their best. We've used drones, sky tools, but considering the weather conditions it is not possible to do air search. It is only possible through ground forces, rescue crews arriving to the area by the dozens but halted by the thick fog coating the mountainous terrain. Crews are currently searching for the chopper just South of the border of Aiserbajan and Iran in a remote area. Iranian officials saying the lives of the president and foreign minister are currently quote at risk. Now there are many questions surrounding the incident which was initially reported as just a rough landing. One of those questions what happens if the president is found dead? According to the Iranian constitution, the 1st Vice President would assume presidential powers and functions if approved by the country's supreme leader. The following step is to host an election within 50 days, a process that has some residents in Tehran saying this could be bad news for the country. In Agartha Disposito. Don't worry. If anything happens to him, it will take time to replace him and for the situation to settle down. And meanwhile things will be chaotic. And this is bad for everyone. Locals say the area in which the chopper crashed is known for notorious bad weather, leaving many to believe it did play a role in the collision. Following an ask from Iran, the European Commission has activated its satellite mapping service to aid in the search for City News. I'm Carling Donahue.
