Unplanned Stop for Mercy Flight

A Mercy Flight helicopter on its way from Port Allegany to Buffalo made an unplanned landing in Olean this morning.

A spokeswoman for Mercy Flight says the helicopter was flying to ECMC when the pilot felt something unusual at the controls and landed at the Olean Airport. Area fire departments were called as a precaution, but the helicopter landed without a problem.

Another helicopter was brought in to take the patient to Buffalo. The person was reportedly injured during a fall.
