Four people, including an infant, were on a medical helicopter when it crashed near the Drexel Hill United Methodist Church just before 1 p.m. Tuesday, January 11, 2022.
The medical chopper was heading from Maryland to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Officials say the crash was a miracle landing because the area in which the medical helicopter crashed is a heavily trafficked area. Fortunately, all four occupants aboard the chopper were able to self extricate with non-life-threatening injuries.
There is no indication yet on what caused the crash. Officials say that while it is cold outside that cold air did not contribute to the crash itself.
