Authorities Investigating Helicopter Crash in NW Iowa”

Two people injured in a helicopter crash in western Lyon County this afternoon (Monday, November 6th) were searching for loose cattle.

According to Sheriff Stewart VanderStoep with the Lyon County Sheriff's Department, the helicopter crew was out helping locate almost 300 cattle that got out early this morning.

"They apparently called in a helicopter to help search for some of these missing 300 head of cattle and.the helicopter hit a power line and went down and crashed".

The helicopter went down in a field near West Lyon Community Schools around 1:20 p.m. after it struck an electrical wire, said Lyon County Sheriff Stewart Vander Stoep. He says Rock Rapids has two feeds from L & O, and he says it's possible that L & O switched feeds to get the power back on in Rock Rapids.

The victims were transferred to a Sioux Falls hospital.

The Federal Aviation Administration is scheduled to arrive Tuesday morning to investigate the crash.
