During a winching training mission the helicopter ditched after a loss of power from one engine during hover (possiblly due to FCU contamination). The crew successfully deployed the floats and evacuated the aircraft 4 minutes after ditching. The front right hand floats were rubbing against the pitot tube (which was not the mod state compatible with the floats) and a few minutes later, the forward chamber of the right front float deflated. The aircraft capsized approximately 18 minutes after ditching. Crew were unhurt.
