North Manchester helicopter crash

Sheriff Ryan Baker tells Fox 55 the pilot of the helicopter was flown to Parkview hospital by a good samaritan.

The victim is in critical condition.

The crash happened on a farm behind a home near West State Road 114.

Sheriff Baker says the helicopter is a single-engine, single-occupant helicopter.

We have a crew at the scene and will have more tonight online and at 10 on FOX 55.
