Lake Kickapoo Helicopter Crash

A Holliday man is undergoing treatment for serious injuries after crashing a helicopter east of Lake Kickapoo this afternoon.

It happened around 2, between the lake and Highway 25.
  

Sergeant Dan Buesing, with the Department of Public Safety, says 62- year old Perry Luig was able to crawl out of the wreckage to call 911 himself.     

He says Luig directed a sheriff's deputy to the location, and then the deputy was able to direct in more law enforcement and EMS. 

Sergeant Buesing says Luig told authorities at the scene he lost power, and he's not sure what caused that to happen.

Luig was flown to United Regional where he is listed in serious condition.

Buesing says the FAA has been notified and should arrive on scene either tonight or in the morning
