CBP helicopter crashes near Bisbee

A helicopter pilot with Customs and Border Protection walked away from an emergency landing east of Bisbee on Monday afternoon. 

Around 4 p.m., a pilot assigned to the Tucson Air Branch of the Office of Air and Marine was on patrol in an AS-350 "A-Star," when he was forced to make an emergency landing south of the Remax Foothills just east of Bisbee. 

The pilot was alone and was able to walk to a vehicle responding to the incident, but was later transported to a hospital for evaluation, said an agency spokesman.

No fatalities or other injuries were reported. 

The National Transportation Safety Board and CBP are investigating the cause of the crash.

A CBP AS-350 like the one that made a hard landing in Southern Arizona on Monday.
