FRESNO, California– An investigation is underway following a helicopter crash in southeast Fresno on Saturday morning.

Fresno Police, who responded to the scene, said a civilian helicopter crashed in the front yard of a home in a neighborhood near Willow Ave and Jensen Ave.

FPD said both the pilot and his passenger survived the crash.

The pilot and his passenger told police they heard a “pop” before losing altitude.

Both were transported to the Community Regional Medical Center for treatment of their injuries. The extent of their injuries is unknown, but FPD said they are expected to survive.

Neighbors were visibly shaken as they waited to return to their homes. It is unclear when the neighborhood will reopen.

Ring footage from a neighbor’s porch captured the moment the helicopter crashed into the yard.

The helicopter was a Bell 206B, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.
