Reality TV copter crew goes down near Pa. campus

INDIANA, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in western Pennsylvania say a helicopter carrying a reality television crew crashed near Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and the four people aboard were taken to hospitals, but no fatalities were reported.

The helicopter went down shortly after 8:30 p.m. Saturday between two apartment buildings, glancing off one of them and landing upside down. Officials say no one on the ground was injured. Police said four people aboard were taken to hospitals, but their conditions were not immediately available.

The Indiana Gazette said the film crew had been following borough officers for "Campus PD," a show filmed in the style of "COPS."

University spokeswoman Michelle Fryling said the university was not involved in the filming. She said two students had asked for temporary housing.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.
