3 dead, 2 injured after helicopter crashes into house in Newport Beach

3 dead, 2 injured after helicopter crashes into house in Newport Beach

At least three people were killed and two others injured when a helicopter crashed on Tuesday into a house in California, US.

Roger Johnson was doing some woodwork when he heard the chopping sound of a helicopter's rotating blades and then a tremendous boom across the street.

A helicopter crashed into a Newport Beach home on Tuesday, officials said. "There were people over there helping open up the helicopter".

Local media reported a neighbor who saw the events of the incident to have spotted three people in the ruins along with a wounded pilot on the grass close to the helicopter.

The airport is about 1.6 kilometres from the crash site. "One I could see moving an arm".

The company CEO, Mark Robinson, said the thoughts and prayers of the company were with the victims and families involved in the crash.

The helicopter is based out of John Wayne Airport in Orange County.

A neighbor who gave his name as Patrick came out to the view the scene after hearing a loud crash, something he said is uncharacteristic for the neighborhood.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.

Helicopter video showed a portion of the helicopter covered by a yellow tarp.

He said the helicopter had just gotten updated equipment a week ago, though he didn't have further details.
