A student pilot and instructor were left injured Friday morning after their helicopter made a hard landing at the Ocean City Municipal Airport.
Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration say the helicopter ended up in a marsh area just west of the tarmac at the airport at around 9:30 a.m. on Friday, August 10th.
It had apparently taken off just a short time earlier.
While the helicopter was heavily damaged, officials say the student pilot — 64-year-old Carol Gray — and the instructor — 62-year-old Harvey Shubart — did not sustain any life-threatening injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The cause of the crash is currently under investigation.
