Helicopter Crashes In Central Ohio; 2 People Hurt

DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — The State Highway Patrol says a small, privately owned helicopter crashed into a farmer’s field in central Ohio, seriously injuring the two men aboard the aircraft.

The crash Thursday afternoon severely damaged the helicopter and sparked a fire in a Delaware County field not far from the Union County line. The cause of the crash wasn’t immediately clear.

A patrol spokesman, Lt. Craig Cvetan (suh-VEHT’-ehn), says the two men were flown to a Columbus hospital. He didn’t have details about their injuries but said they weren’t believed to be life-threatening. He identified the men as 81-year-old Henry Brecher of Columbus and 50-year-old Todd Cramer of nearby Dublin.

Cvetan said troopers weren’t immediately sure which man was the pilot or who owns the helicopter.
