  • 3 dead after helicopter crashes into California home

Three people died after a helicopter crashed into a house in Orange County Tuesday afternoon, NBC reports.

The four-seat Robinson 44 helicopter crashed into the home in the 40 block of Egret Court around 1:45 p.m., according to Newport Beach fire and Federal Aviation Administration officials.

Police say the fifth person involved was on the ground at the time of the crash, however it's not clear if they were inside the house at the time.

The helicopter crashed into the Newport Beach house with such force that it was barely recognizable. A piece of the tail rotor was seen lodged in the tiled roof of a home across the street.

The neighbor said she then "put my hand on the back of the helicopter and started praying over them". She added that one of the homes that had been hit was up for sale.

Marian Michaels, who lives behind the house that was struck by the chopper, told The Associated Press her house shook when the crash happened.

The home involved is situated in a gated community about one mile southeast of the airport, and adjacent to the UC Irvine campus.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. The operator is Santa Ana-based Revolution Aviation.

No further details were immediately available.
