Nikkei wrote briefly that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga told reporters on Wednesday that the GOJ has been informed by the U.S. that the object that fell onto the premises of a middle school in Urasoe, Okinawa, was a piece of rubber tape that had been attached to a wing blade of a U.S. military helicopter. Suga added that the incident was very regrettable and the GOJ will call on the U.S. to thoroughly implement safety measures and prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. NHK, Fuji-TV, and TBS aired similar reports on Wednesday evening, saying the part was confirmed to be from a U.S. Marine helicopter based at MCAS Futenma.
