The two-person aircrew was transported for medical treatment, but no fatalities were reported. The helicopter was damaged.

Officials say the incident is under investigation.

Fort Rucker, located in southeast Alabama, is the headquarters for U.S. Army Aviation and is the primary flight training installation for the Army.
