As if South Florida traffic weren’t already a hassle, a small helicopter made an emergency landing on a downtown Fort Lauderdale street during rush hour Wednesday afternoon.
Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Department tweeted that the helicopter took a “hard landing” but that no one was hurt — not its two passengers nor anyone on the ground. But the landing just after 5 p.m. has affected traffic downtown at 350 SE Second Ave.
Video from Sky 10 showed the small chopper is a Schweizer 296C-1. The helicopter is registered to Helocraft Holdings Co. in Pembroke Pines, according to the station.
