Helicopter crashes into a Wisconsin home


A helicopter crashed into a Kenosha, Wis. home early Sunday killing the two passengers, while sparing the home’s five residents-2 adults and 3 children.

“It’s an amazing miracle that no one was injured inside the home,? the Kenosha Fire Department’s Wesley Bernhardt said at a news conference.

The helicopter belonged to Midwest Aviation Services but the purpose and flight information were not available.

No flight plan was filed with the airport. A flight plan is not required, though it is recommended as a safety measure, operations supervisor at the Kenosha airport, Corey Reed, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Neighboring homes were evacuated due to fuel issues and other potential hazards.
