Five dead, including a child, in chopper crash in Pennsylvania

A helicopter crash in a rugged, wooded area of Pennsylvania claimed the lives of five people, including one child, officials have said. The crash happened on Saturday night after the pilot told air traffic controllers he was losing altitude, according to the county coroner.
Wyoming County coroner Thomas Kukuchka said the pilot contacted a nearby tower around 10:30 pm local time saying he would attempt to return to another airfield nearby.
Although the names of those on board have not been released, Kukuchka said three men, a woman and a child were on board. ‘It appears to be a father and son, a father and daughter and the pilot,’ the coroner said.
