2 killed in medical helicopter crash

OKLAHOMA CITY — A medical helicopter crashed outside an Oklahoma City nursing home early Friday, killing two people on board and injuring a third who was pulled from the burning wreckage, officials said.

Only the flight team was on board when the helicopter crashed while headed from Oklahoma City to Watonga, 70 miles away, to pick up a patient, said Fire Department Battalion Chief Marc Woodard. No one on the ground was seriously injured or killed.
