RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - One person is hurt after a Navy helicopter had to make an emergency landing in Isle of Wight County.

State police say the call came in around 11:30 Wednesday morning.

Officials say as the helicopter was making the emergency landing, the momentum of the aircraft caused it to slide into a wood line and strike several trees.

There were three people on board at the time; the two pilots were not hurt.

A passenger in the back was sent to a local hospital with minor injuries.

An investigation remains underway.
