Fla. Sheriff’s Helicopter Makes Emergency Landing

DAYTONA BEACH SHORES, Fla. (AP) — The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office has grounded one of its helicopters after a crew made an emergency landing after feeling the engine shudder.

The helicopter made an emergency landing on the beach in Ponce Inlet on Wednesday.

Sheriff’s spokesman Gary Davidson told the Daytona Beach News-Journal the helicopter landed normally and no one was injured. After checking out the craft and doing preliminary field testing at the beach, the crew flew to New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport for more testing.

The crew then flew to DeLand, where it will be inspected.

Davidson says the department has two other helicopters in operation.
