1 dead in helicopter crash near Eyota

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- One person is dead after a helicopter crashed in a corn field in Eyota Saturday afternoon.

It happened around 2 p.m. on the 2000 block of 80th Ave northeast.

Authorities have not identified the fatality, but neighbors say the victim is a man from Plainview, who was working as a crop duster.

The helicopter appears to be owned by Northland Helicopter of Stacyville, Iowa, which had representatives on site.

Several law enforcement and rescue agencies were at the scene. Mayo was reportedly also called in, but then sent back.

It's still unclear what caused the helicopter to crash.
