A helicopter crash during shooting on a reality show over the weekend left two people injured, the Los Angeles Times reports. The crash reportedly happened Saturday in Grimes County, Texas, during filming on the Destination America show “A Haunting.”

“The helicopter made a hard landing and suffered substantial damage, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration said Sunday. The FAA and the Texas Department of Public Safety said they will investigate,” the Times reports. “The chopper was one of two helicopters filming when a gust of wind spun the aircraft out of control, a Texas DPS spokesman said. The helicopter struck a tree and landed on its right side in a wooded area. Its injured occupants were taken to Bryan St. Joseph regional hospital.”

“A Haunting” features people who say they’ve encountered the supernatural.

The times notes: “A recent Los Angeles Times review of U.S. government data found that nearly one-third of all fatalities on film and TV shoots during the last five years has involved reality shows.”
