Mon., Oct. 13, 1997

A helicopter crashed Sunday in a remote area, killing four people, state police said.

It took rescue workers about 30 minutes to get to the crash site on the heavily wooded hillside, said firefighter Joe Bennett.

Rescuers had to approach the crash site on foot, Bennett said.

The crashed chopper did not burn.

Clarksburg television station WBOY said three men and one woman were on board the private helicopter that was being used to take pictures of a coal preparation plant.

Further details were not immediately released.
