Houston Police helicopter clips building and crashes: one dead, pilot injured

Too new to post URL's

A police officer was killed and another was in critical condition when their helicopter clipped a building and crashed near a group of apartment blocks in Houston, authorities said Saturday. The aircraft avoided the densely populated Biscayne apartment buildings in the Greenspoint area of the city as residents slept. But it clipped part of a clubhouse building and came down in the Imperial Valley area, the department said, adding that no residents were injured or evacuated.
According to one report, they were looking for bodies floating in a bayou, which means flying low. There are several tall buildings in the area.

NTSB investigating.
