Helicopter crashes at Cape Town university

A helicopter crashed on the University of Cape Town’s campus Wednesday morning, but all four people inside walked from the wreckage without major injury, local media said.

“The helicopter has been destroyed and was found lying on its left side,” emergency service ER24 spokesman Andre Visser told the Sapa news agency.

“The four occupants were very lucky they weren’t hurt.”

The small Robinson 44 helicopter crashed on the university’s Middle Campus near a highway, forcing officials to close the road, Sapa said.
