We are just getting terrible news of a downed helicopter, a US Military choker. We are still not sure what took the bird down…
Fox News reported:
‘Emergency crews were responding to a military helicopter crash Wednesday evening in upstate New York, according to reports.
Witnesses said the crash happened in the town of Mendon, about 80 miles east of Buffalo.’
As the story is breaking, not much is known as of yet.
However, we were able to obtain some video and images of the horrific incident.
WROC, a local affiliate reported:
‘MENDON, N.Y. (WROC) — Three people are dead after a military helicopter crash along West Bloomfield Road near Cheese Factory Road in Mendon.
It happened around 6:30 p.m. Witnesses reported seeing the helicopter flying low to the ground.’
My source tells me 3 people are dead. https://t.co/4R5AyPf93M
