SUITLAND, Md. (AP) — A helicopter from Joint Base Andrews made a precautionary landing near a hospital in the Washington suburbs during a training mission.

Joint Base Andrews said in a statement Friday that the UH-1N Iroquois helicopter assigned to the 1st Helicopter Squadron landed near Strayer University and Marlow Heights Medical Center in Suitland, about 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the base.


Officials say the helicopter landed in response to a low oil pressure indicator and none of the three people on board was hurt.

A maintenance crew will assess the situation.
