MORRIS COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - According to the Morris County Sheriff's Office, a helicopter made a hard landing in a heavily wooded area off of County Road 3333 near Omaha on Wednesday morning.

The pilot said the landing was planned, but as the helicopter was landing, wind and momentum bent the blades down and sheared off the tail section and rotor.

The chopper's pilot was uninjured. The helicopter was spraying defoliant on the property before the incident occurred.

A crane will be brought in this afternoon to remove the chopper.
