Four Aboard Killed In Police Copter Crash

Compiled From Wire Services

A state police helicopter crashed onto the roof of an unoccupied Harvard University boathouse shortly after takeoff Wednesday, killing two police pilots and the two civilians with them.

The wreckage drew scores of people to the normally quiet banks of the Charles River, near the edges of the Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology campuses.

The French-made Aerospatiale AS350-B jet helicopter was left dangling at the edge of the Harvard Yacht Club.
