29-May-15 N206ED Bell 206B Caledonia, US-Michegan

Emergency situation led pilot Ken Wilson to put the helicopter down into trees – and it came to rest in the branches 40 feet from the ground.  Wilson and passenger Raymond Osan III – working on low level powerlines – were able to get out of the helicopter into the trees, from which they were rescued.  The pilot, during a TV interview, said it was an operational emergency and nothing to do with the helicopter itself.
