Three people were killed in Tucson, Arizona when a medical helicopter crashed and burst into flames.
The chopper went down crashing into a fence in front of a house. A witness reported seeing the chopper drop to the ground after its rotors stopped working.
He said the pilot of the Lifenet Health medical helicopter managed to keep the craft from hitting the house. No injuries were reported on the ground. The helicopter was not transporting a patient at the time.
