Sky 12 crew hospitalized after hard landing

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

(WFLX) - Our Sky 12 made a hard landing Tuesday morning after losing power around 6:20 a.m. The Chopper landed safely on its belly just east of I-95 near Boynton Beach Boulevard. Both our traffic reporter, Paul Cavenaugh and the pilot escaped serious injury.

They were transported to Bethesda Memorial Hospital where they are being treated for minor injuries.

The pilot landed after getting a warning light and looking for a safe place to land. The landing gear on the chopper was damaged and the tail of the chopper was also split in half, but the main section of the chopper is still in tact.

Our best wishes are with our partners for a speedy recovery. We will keep you posted.
