Helicopter Crashes Into Home in Mississippi Killing 1

Authorities say a helicopter has crashed into a vacant home in Mississippi, killing one person on board.

The Federal Aviation Administration says one person died when the helicopter went down in Jackson on Tuesday afternoon.

University of Mississippi Medical Center spokesman Jack Mazurak says a second person on board is in critical condition there.

FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says the helicopter is a Robinson R-44 that went down about a half mile east of Hawkins Airport.

She says there are no reports of injuries on the ground or property damage.

Jackson Police Department spokesman Jeffrey Scott says the home hit by the helicopter appears to be vacant.
