A Los Angeles police helicopter made an emergency landing in a West Hollywood street today when a warning alarm indicated a possible engine problem. A warning alarm indicated a possible loss of engine power.

The pilot says she knew she had to land the chopper right away because the engine could have quit at any time.

The pilot says she and her partner considered a few options, but decided San Vicente Boulevard was the best place to land because there were no people, cars, or obstructions in the way.

They safely landed the chopper, without anyone getting hurt. It was later cleared to resume flying.
