Coast Guard helicopter makes emergency landing on Washington Island

DOOR COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A Coast Guard helicopter that was heading across Lake Michigan made an emergency landing on Door County's Washington Island.

Officials said four crew members escaped injury when the chopper had flight control problems Sunday morning, about 30 minutes into the trip.

The Coast Guard said the MH-65C Dolphin chopper was flying from an air station at Traverse City in lower Michigan to Iron Mountain in the Upper Peninsula.

The helicopter was planning to take part in a search and rescue mission, but it returned to Traverse City after its Door County landing.
