Helicopter Crashes in Front Yard of Newton House - Charles D'Alberto
NEWTON -- It was a very scary scene for a Newton resident and for the two passengers in a helicopter after it crashed in the front yard of a house just after 1 p.m. Thursday.
The man living inside says he ran to help the passenger and pilot get out.
Officials tell us both men were taken to the hospital the passenger had minor injuries and the pilot has serious injuries.
The helicopter was surveying a new gas line pipe in the area. It’s a private company hired by the contractor.
The fire department and state troopers are securing the area until the FAA arrives later tonight and they will take on the investigation including releasing the pilot’s names.
