SAN DIEGO (AP) — The hard landing of helicopter carrying San Diego Gas & Electric workers has grounded the utility's aircraft operations.
SDG&E spokeswoman Jennifer Ramp says three people aboard were taken to the hospital following the Friday afternoon incident in Imperial County.
The employees were doing routine inspections of the utility's facilities.
Ramp did not know the extent of their injuries, or whether they have been released from the hospital.
