A helicopter with two passengers on board crashed into a home in Southern California while attempting to land, Tuesday afternoon, officials said. Two others were reported as injured.

Newport Beach police said there were four people on the aircraft, which usually only seats four passengers. Witness accounts and skid marks and debris indicate the aircraft's rotor may have first struck the roof of the other house as it was coming down, then hit the ground and skidded into the front wall of the home.

"We tried to pry them out but we didn't want to touch them". "We didn't want to take a chance of hurting anybody".

"The three people were all crunched in there together", a neighbour who witnessed the crash said. She got to the scene and said she "saw one man out, I'm not sure if he fell out, and there was body parts ..."




The Federal Aviation Administration says the helicopter had taken off from John Wayne Airport, which is about a mile from the crash site.

There was no fire after the incident, but plenty of fluids on the ground.

The cause of the crash is now under investigation and will be handled by the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.
