ISLE OF WIGHT, Co., – A Navy helicopter made a safe emergency landing on Wednesday.
The Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office said dispatch got a call about an emergency landing around 1:30 p.m.
The crew of the MH-53 from Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron HM-14 had to land in the middle of a farmer’s field north of Emmanuel Church Road.
The helicopter landed safely after experiencing mechanical issues, deputies said.
In a Facebook post the Sheriff’s Office explained the odd call saying: “‘Disabled Vehicle Call’–stuck in a corn field in the county. Uhhh, dispatch, I need the next wrecker on rotation. Tell them it’s for a Sikorsky SEA STALLION helicopter.”
There were no injuries reported.
