OZARK, Ala. (AP) - Two people were hurt when a helicopter went down at the Army’s main training base in south Alabama.

Officials at Fort Rucker did not immediately release information about the extent of injuries or a potential cause of the accident, which happened Thursday afternoon. But photos and videos from new outlets showed an Army helicopter lying on its ride side with significant damage at a base landing field.

Fort Rucker is the Army’s primary training facility for helicopter pilots. The incident involved an AH-64 Apache helicopter with a crew conducting flight training, according to a statement from the base.
