Philadelphia Helicopter Crash

Authorities say a medical helicopter has crashed in a residential area of suburban Philadelphia, with four people on board including an infant all expected to survive.

Upper Darby police Superintendent Timothy M. Bernhardt said at a press conference Tuesday that rescue crews rushed to the crash near a church at an intersection in Upper Darby’s Drexel Hill neighborhood at about 1 p.m. and helped pull the pilot, two crew members and infant patient from the aircraft.

None of them sustained life-threatening injuries. The infant patient has been taken to a hospital.
