During the approach, the helicopter pitched forward, and the pilot moved the cyclic aft to compensate for the forward pitch. Shortly thereafter, the helicopter rolled to the right and entered a spin to the right. The pilot then attempted to land the helicopter, but it impacted terrain and rolled onto its left side. Pilot Ed Faris was transported to a hospital for treatment of injuries not believed to be life-threatening. The passenger, 34-year-old Terry Claessen, was treated at the scene.
