CENTERTON, Ark. (AP) — Authorities say no one was hurt after a helicopter made an emergency landing in a residential area in northwest Arkansas.

Centerton Police Capt. Kris Arthur says police had received a report of a helicopter crash Tuesday morning, but that everyone was “safe and sound” when officers arrived.

Arthur tells the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that the pilot told authorities that he was forced to make the landing because of a mechanical failure. He says the pilot did “an amazing job” by landing the helicopter safely on a city street.

Police say the helicopter was towed to the police department afterward.
