2 injured in E. Wenatchee helicopter crash

EAST WENATCHEE -- Witnesses say two men were seriously injured when a helicopter working to dry cherries in an East Wenatchee orchard clipped a power line.
The Wenatchee World reported that the crash happened Tuesday afternoon after a brief rainstorm.
Joe Ells and Nathan Goforth were nearby and ran to the crash site. Ells said the helicopter landed upside down.
The injured men were taken to a hospital. No information on their condition was immediately available.
Firefighters called utility crews to service the damaged 100,000-volt power line.
Helicopters are routinely called in the blow moisture off cherries after a rainstorm to keep the cherries from splitting open.
