LAPD helicopter makes emergency landing at USC

An LAPD helicopter was forced to land on an athletic field in Exposition Park Wednesday.

The LAPD reported an engine chip light came on inside helicopter, so the pilot made a precautionary landing in a soccer field near the southwest corner of the USC's Memorial Coliseum.

The same helicopter made a precautionary landing earlier in the week due to the same engine light.

A mechanic was summoned to the Exposition Park location Wednesday to service the aircraft.
