Helicopter crashes, 4 suffer minor injuries  

FENNER  – Four people suffered minor injuries when their company helicopter crashed Tuesday in foggy conditions near a windmill farm in Central New York, state police said.

Initial reports were that all four people were able to walk away from the downed aircraft, said Trooper Jim Simpson, a state police spokesman.

The private helicopter was owned by Canastota Windpower, a wholly owned subsidiary of Enel North America Inc. The helicopter crew was doing routine maintenance when the pilot became disoriented in the heavy fog.

“It appears it was more of a hard landing, but we’re still investigating. We were expecting the worse when the call first came in,” Simpson said.

The Fenner wind farm consists of 20 wind turbines. Located about 30 miles east of Syracuse, it began producing power in 2001.
