Update: Melrose Copter Crash

New details about a New Mexico helicopter crash twelve miles north of Melrose that took place more than a week ago.
 
  

A preliminary report released by the National Transportation Safety Board says the two pilots on board were headed to Albuquerque when they felt a severe vibration in the tail end.
  

They had to make an emergency landing, but the strong winds caused the chopper to spin and roll over on the ground. The two pilots were injured in the crash.

This investigation is ongoing.
