False reports of helicopter crash in Sedgwick Co.

COLWICH, Kansas – Emergency dispatchers received a call Tuesday afternoon stating that a helicopter was caught in some power lines at 53rd Street North and 183rd Street West.

Someone thought a chopper was caught in power lines.

It turned out to not be the case.

The chopper was just helping crews as they worked on utility poles.

According to Westar the helicopter was being used to install bird protection on the power lines.

While fascinating and dangerous, it is routine for crews.
