Helicopter Hits Hydro Wire

The Ministry of Labour and Transport Canada have both been contacted after a helicopter severed a hydro wire while it was spraying a field on Mallard Line in Dover Township.

Chatham-kent police say the pilot landed safely at around 9am this morning before flying away from the scene moments later.

Officers later located the 26-year-old Saskatchewan man who was operating the helicopter.

No one was injured, but the helicopter did sustain a cracked windshield. Police are still looking to speak with any witnesses.
