Texas News Helicopter Crash Lands

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) - Another scare involving a television station's helicopter, but this time it ended with only a few bruises.

A chopper carrying a pilot and two traffic reporters for a Dallas T-V station crashed-landed near a lake dam after losing power this morning.

Reporter Chip Waggoner of K-D-F-W T-V told his station that the chopper had lost power, but that the pilot was able to make a hard emergency landing. A radio traffic reporter on board reported feeling a bit sore.

Today's incident follows Friday's deadly collision between two T-V news helicopters in Phoenix, in which four people were killed.
