Update: Helicopter Crashes in Lake Texoma


GRAYSON CO., TX - The helicopter that crashed into Lake Texoma has now been removed from the water.

We learned Monday the helicopter was part of Longhorn Helicopters, a company based out of Denton, that's been hired to complete an environmental impact study on Lake Texoma. Those studies must be completed before plans to build new developments around the lake can be done.

Both men inside the chopper at the time survived and told investigators the helicopter lost power while they were flying around Lake Texoma. They ditched the chopper over the water and swam to shore, unharmed. DPS Troopers say the Federal Aviation Administration is now investigating.
