5 dead in NE Pa. helicopter crash

NOXEN, Pa. (AP) - State police say five people are dead after a helicopter crash in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Trooper Adam Reed says troopers and officials from the Federal Aviation Administration are still on the scene in a heavily wooded area of Wyoming County, about 80 miles north of Philadelphia.

The FAA says the wreckage of a Robinson 66 helicopter was found shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday near Noxen. Reed says inclement weather hampered search efforts.

An FAA spokeswoman said the helicopter took off from Greater Binghamton Airport in New York and was heading to Jake Arner Memorial Airport in Lehighton on Saturday night.

She said an alert notice was issued after the radar and communication contact with the aircraft was lost Saturday night.

Additional information on the crash victims was not immediately available.
