Crews Disassemble Mangled Chopper

Crews have partially disassembled a Customs and Border Protection helicopter that made a forced emergency landing Thursday night on San Onofre Beach so it can be removed from the scene.

A federal investigator says the chopper will likely be stored at North Island in Coronado while officials from the NTSB and Federal Aviation Administration try to determine what went wrong.

The pilot reported engine trouble before making a rough emergency landing last night on the beach.

Officials say the three federal agents aboard the McDonnell Douglas 600 suffered minor injuries.
