Officials say 2 aboard helicopter die in Pennsylvania crash

Mechanicsburg, Jan 10 (AP) Two people aboard a helicopter were killed when the aircraft crashed in a Pennsylvania backyard, authorities said. No one on the ground was injured in the Thursday night crash, Cumberland County spokesman John Bruetsch told news outlets. The county's coroner, Charley Hall, confirmed that the two fatalities were a result of the crash.

Pictures and video of the crash site from news outlets show a residential neighborhood that's part of Silver Spring Township, near Mechanicsburg. The helicopter crashed behind a residence where people were home at the time, Bruetsch said, and there was a large debris field — but the property wasn't damaged.

The helicopter wasn't medical, Bruetsch said, but no further details regarding its provenance were immediately available. The cause of the crash wasn't immediately clear, and the identities of the two people killed weren't immediately released. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board were to investigate, Bruetsch said.

Bruetsch said the investigation would be a “long, drawn-out process.” (AP) AMS AMS
