Medical Chopper Crash Lands In Missouri

LA MONTE, Mo. - A medical helicopter has crashed landed shortly after takeoff in western Missouri, injuring three members of the flight crew.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the Staff for Life helicopter had just taken off from a helipad in La Monte on Sunday morning to respond to a call when it came down at the landing zone, crashing onto the helipad located about 10 miles west of Sedalia.

Doug Briscoe, owner of American Paramedical Services Inc., said the three injured were the pilot, a flight nurse and a paramedic. No patient was on board. The Sedalia Democrat reported all three were in fair condition Sunday at an area hospital.

FAA spokesman Tony Molinaro said the crash is under investigation.
