KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say at least two people are dead after
a medical helicopter crashed in a central Oklahoma field.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford says the Eagle Med
helicopter had left Oklahoma City's Integris Baptist Medical Center and was
on its way to pick up a patient when it crashed about 8 p.m. Thursday.

Lunsford didn't know the helicopter's destination. It crashed near
Kingfisher, which is about 50 miles northwest of Oklahoma City.

Lunsford says he doesn't know how many people were on board the aircraft but
that another medical helicopter had been dispatched to the scene.
