Helicopter Crash Under Investigation


Federal officials are trying to piece together what caused a helicopter crash Monday morning in Breathitt County.

Burned boots and melted metal, that is almost all that is left in the wreckage of a Drug Enforcement Agency helicopter.

Two men were inside the chopper when it went down.

One works for the DEA and the other is a Kentucky State Trooper.

Their names are not being released at this time to protect their identities when they return to work.


Now, officials from the DEA and the Federal Aviation Administration are on site investigating the cause of the crash.
