CODY, WY - Four people walked away from a helicopter crash near Cody, Wyoming on Tuesday morning.
Pilot Bruce Harrison, a Cody resident, had been taking a friend and her parents on a sightseeing overview of the area when an apparent mechanical failure brought the helicopter down in an irrigated field, according to Park County Sheriff Scott Steward.
Steward said an ambulance crew arrived on the scene to assess the passengers, but allowed everyone to leave after treating minor injuries.
Harrison regularly participates in search and rescue missions for the Park County Sheriff's Office, Steward added.
