GREENE TOWNSHIP  -- One person is dead after a helicopter crash in Pike County.

The coroner was called to the scene of a downed chopper in Green Township late Sunday night, near Promised Land State Park.

Officials haven't said exactly where or why the helicopter went down, nor who was aboard.

Monroe County sent three fire departments to assist at the scene.

Pike County's Emergency Management Agency Director Tim Knapp told Newswatch 16 they found the wreckage using coordinates and pings on the pilot's cellphone and were able to locate the aircraft.

Authorities said the Federal Aviation Administration is expected to search for the cause of the deadly helicopter crash.
