Air-Evac suffers hard landing, no injuries to rescue workers

Posted: Updated:

LAKE CITY, AR (KAIT) – The Air-Evac rescue team in Lake City walked away unharmed after a hard landing late Wednesday night.

According to Air-Evac, the rescue helicopter was on final approach to their base when they suffered an engine malfunction.

The pilot was able to set the helicopter down close to the heli-pad in what they called a hard landing.

No one was injured in the landing, but the helicopter did receive minor damage.

The crew does have a spare helicopter on scene, so no services will be disrupted.

Air-Evac says the incident is being looked into, and the damaged helicopter will be sent off for repairs.
