LONG BEACH (CBS) — Two people were hurt Tuesday after a helicopter crashed at Long Beach Airport.

Firefighters were sent to the airport at 12:30 p.m. on the report that a helicopter went down.

An instructor and a student were practicing hovering exercises in the two-seater Robinson R-22 when it hit the ground and rolled over, CBS2/KCAL9 Helicopter Reporter Derek Bell reported.

Some fuel spilled, but firefighters quickly took care of it.

Both occupants were taken to a hospital for treatment.
