BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER ANCHOR AUSTIN KIM You're watching multisource U.S. news analysis from Newsy. Imagine minding your own business in your apartment, when suddenly a helicopter comes crashing down Hollywood style overhead. It was a scene all too real for residents of Indiana, Pennsylvania. Pittsburg’s WTAE reports even though the helicopter crashed in a residential area, no one was killed. “We know that all the patients were pulled from the wreckage--as you’re looking at SKY 4 video, of this helicopter crash. We know that it crashed in a residential area, very close to the campus of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. We know all four patients were rushed to the hospital.” The Indiana Gazette featured this video shot by someone on the ground who got close enough to the crash to capture law enforcement helping people out of the helicopter. The chopper was filming for a reality TV show called Campus PD. CBS Pittsburgh-affiliate KDKA has the details. “...and it’s sort of a ‘COPS’ like program, or reality program where they follow police around. They said they chose this campus because of its diversity and also because, in so many words, of its party reputation.” Indiana, Pennsylvania residents took the the message boards to voice their feelings about the wreck. Here’s what one blogger wrote on an ESP forum: “That would suck if those people died for that stupid Campus PD show.” And here’s another perspective from someone on the extreme music forum LambGoat... “[I]t was the most exciting thing to happen to this town since.... well... yeah it was the most exciting [thing] to ever happen to this town.” ...but now the excitement is over--it’s time to figure out how to clean up the wreckage. The Pittsurgh Post-Gazette reports- it won’t be easy. “Concerns about fire remain as high-octane fuel continues to leak from the downed chopper, and students living in two buildings near the scene...have not been allowed to return, borough fire officials said.” And according to Pittsburgh’s WPXI- the FAA is looking into the accident. REPORTER: “The FAA is in town conducting an investigation, and we spoke to a student, who lives in the apartment building the chopper crashed into.” STUDENT: “We heard a lot of people like screaming and pointing at it, and I look out the window and, like five seconds later, we heard it crash.” Follow Newsy on Twitter- or Like us on Facebook- for more US news.
