One person on the ground was also involved in the wreck, the Newport Beach Police confirmed after initially reporting that no people on the ground were involved. Witness accounts and skid marks and debris indicate the aircraft's rotor may have first struck the roof of the other house as it was coming down, then hit the ground and skidded into the front wall of the home. "Then I heard someone scream - a real for-real horror scream, like something awful had happened".
An eyewitness tells KCAL-TV that he saw the pilot lying injured but alive on the grass and there were three other people inside the wreckage.
"We tried to pry them out but we didn't want to touch them", the neighbor told the station.
The John Wayne Airport confirmed the Robinson 44 helicopter had four passengers on board when it crashed just one mile southeast of the airport. Skid marks were seen on the road leading up to the crash site.
Messages seeking comment from Revolution Aviation, which is based at the airport and operated the helicopter, were not immediately returned.
Helicopter video showed a portion of the helicopter covered by a yellow tarp.
