A US National Guard helicopter is stuck in a muddy field after an emergency landing in Baytown, Texas. There were no reports of injuries.
A truck driver who witnessed the incident said: “I didn’t know what was wrong, I thought someone was coming into my truck. I looked out the windows, and the pilot, he did an excellent job putting her down. It could have been a lot worse.”
He added that the pilots told him there was a mechanical issue with the aircraft.
“Something in the transmission on both sides of the chopper had overheated, and his emergency light came on. So he needed to get it down before a problem happened.”
The National Guard did not clarify as to how or when the helicopter would be removed.
