One dead in Army helicopter crash on Maryland golf course

Military helicopter crashes into golf course

The two surviving crew members are being treated at Shock Trauma in Baltimore.

An eyewitness who works at the pro shop of the Breton Bay Golf and Country Club in Leonardtown said he saw the helicopter flying low, and then saw it spinning before it went down between the third and fourth holes of the golf course.

Officials at Fort Belvoir, which is located about 40 miles northwest of the country club, said a UH-60 Black Hawk attached to the base's 12th Aviation Battalion, which provides aviation support to Army Military District of Washington, "had a hard landing", according to a statement posted on the base's Facebook page. It wasn't immediately clear what condition that person was in or whether the other two crew members had been injured.

"We are deeply saddened by this loss within our community", Maj.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.

One of three crew on an Army Blackhawk helicopter was killed when it crashed on a Maryland golf course Monday.

Another witness, Bianca Melton, told CNN the helicopter looked like it stalled out before crashing.

The incident comes less than two weeks after a military jet crashed in a wooded area just outside a suburban Washington neighborhood. That pilot, who was on a routine training mission at the time, was able to eject himself from the D.C. Air National Guard F-16C fighter jet. No one on the ground was hurt.

On Monday, April 17th, 2017, at approximately 1:20 p.m., rescue personnel were dispatched to a reported aircraft crash at the Breton Bay Golf Course in Leonardtown.
