NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Six people have suffered minor injuries after a helicopter made a rough landing into a central Indiana corn field.

The Indianapolis Star and WTHR-TV quote the Noblesville Fire Department as saying the crash occurred just after 6 p.m. southeast of Noblesville.

Fire Capt. Rick Russell says the single-engine Eurocopter EC130 with six occupants was flying to Indianapolis from Fort Wayne when it encountered heavy rain and tried to divert to Noblesville Airport. The aircraft circled once, then crashed on its side in a harvested cornfield a few hundred feet behind a home

All six escaped the aircraft before it burst into flames.
