3 Killed in Helicopter Crash in Florida

Three people have been killed in a helicopter crash in Palm Bay, Florida, authorities told ABC News.

"My understanding is that no one walked away," Brevard County Fire Rescue Public Information Officer Don Walker said of the accident.

The Sikorsky S-61N crashed approximately 10 miles southwest of the Melbourne International Airport this afternoon, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement.

According to the Palm Bay Police Department, the chopper -- a "military style aircraft" that was not operating in any military capacity -- was reportedly "flying low."
