High winds blew over a helicopter on the ground in Santa Clarita near Los Angeles on Wednesday, killing one person, authorities said.

A second person was injured, said Inspector Ron Haralson of the Santa Clarita County Fire Department.

Paramedics were sent to scene and rushed the injured person to a nearby hospital, Haralson said.

The tail registration number indicates the helicopter is an experimental helicopter built by Kaman Aerospace in 2003, and used for firefighting and industrial lifting projects, according to Federal Aviation Authority records.

The region has been hit by rains and snow in the past few days, leaving some residents stranded.

A winter storm warning will remain in effect until Wednesday in the southern California foothills.
