Black Hawk Chopper Down in New Mexico

A Black Hawk helicopter (search) from Kirtland Air Force Base went down Wednesday afternoon near the Vietnam memorial chapel near Angel Fire.

Kirtland spokeswoman Deb Mercurtio had no word on the number of people aboard or any injuries, but Roland Herwig, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration (search) in Oklahoma City said it carried three people.

The HH60 (search) helicopter from the Albuquerque base's 512th Rescue Unit of the 58th Special Operations Wing went down about 1:30 p.m.
