TV helicopter becomes news in emergency landing

LOS ANGELES — A new helicopter in Los Angeles had to make an emergency landing Monday.

The cabin filled with smoke after the engine developed an oil leak. 

The pilot was able to find a safe place to land and made a text book emergency landing in an empty lot.

“As we were coming down I was watching my instruments and everything was staying normal,” KTLA pilot Tim Lynn said. “My engine power, good temperatures, good oil pressure, so I knew I had a healthy engine and all I needed to do was put it on the ground.”

Neither the pilot, the photographer on board nor anyone on the ground was injured in the incident.
