Associated Press Report
PHOENIX (AP) -- Two television news helicopters covering a police pursuit crashed and burned in a central Phoenix park, killing at least two people.
A KTVK TV (3) anchor tearfully told viewers that one of the helicopters was theirs, and that the pilot and photographer aboard were killed. KNXV-TV (15) said the other helicopter was theirs.
The helicopters collided while covering a police pursuit of a man in a construction truck.
The helicopters crashed in flames in a grassy area of Steele Indian School Park.
