NEW YORK (AP) - A helicopter has crashed at an airport outside New York City, injuring two people.
Officials at the Federal Aviation Administration say the Hughes 269 helicopter was trying to land at Westchester County Airport when it crashed alongside a runway at 8:40 a.m. Saturday.
The helicopter rolled on its side. The pilot and one passenger were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
