CHATHAM, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a helicopter has crashed into a pond on Cape Cod, leaving two people with serious injuries.

The two-passenger helicopter crashed early Friday afternoon near the shore in Chatham, Massachusetts.

Chatham police Lt. Michael Anderson says the male pilot and a female passenger were trapped in the helicopter, which was partially submerged in the pond.

He says both victims were conscious when crews responded, but they had serious injuries.

Then were transported to separate nearby hospitals.

Police were investigating to determine where the helicopter originated. The names of the injured were not immediately released.
