Helicopter crashes near Beaver Dam
A student pilot suffered only minor injuries when the helicopter he was flying crashed in a field about one mile north of Beaver Dam on Thursday night.

The FAA was notified and the cause of the accident will be investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board.
