Mexico's ex-water commission director fined for chopper flap

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexico's anti-corruption agency has fined the former director of the country's National Water Commission for using an agency helicopter to ferry his family to the airport.

The Public Administration Department announced a fine of 638,653 pesos (more than $43,500) against David Korenfeld late Thursday. The agency said the fine was three times the damage caused.

Photographs, apparently taken by a neighbor on March 29, circulated on social media showing people walking with suitcases to a helicopter marked with the agency's name.

Korenfeld resigned days later in April and apologized for an error in judgment.
