A U.S. military helicopter crashed after clipping a TV tower support wire in the southern state of Georgia Thursday morning, killing 4 people on board and leaving one survivor.
The crash took place as the MH-47 Chinook helicopter was flying from the Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Georgia, to Fort Rucker, Alabama, CBS News reported.
Witnesses said they saw flames and smoke coming out of the helicopter's engine, and noticed the only survivor walking along a fence with a cut above his eye and a few scratches on his hands.
At present, the survivor's condition is not available.
Authorities are trying to determine whether the collision with the television tower caused the crash or the helicopter was already in trouble.
The U.S. military has not released the names of those aboard the crashed chopper.
