Hard chopper landing

Five people walked away from a hard helicopter landing north of Pitt Meadows Sunday.

Emergency crews were called to a reported crash just before 2 p.m. in the mountains north of the community, according to CTV Vancouver.

The chopper was owned and operated by SKY Helicopters. The company deployed another helicopter to the scene and transported the pilot and passengers to waiting paramedics at the local airport. Injuries were minor.

“Early this afternoon SKY Helicopters experienced an incident with one of our flights,” CEO Andrew Westlund told CTV. “Passengers and crew aboard the aircraft are safe and we are working with the authorities and Transport Canada to review the situation."

Transport Canada said a control issue resulted in the hard landing and an investigation is underway.
