A pilot was injured but his four passengers escaped unharmed after a helicopter crash in Hawaii this morning.

KITV news reports the tour helicopter was forced to make what officials described as a "hard landing" in the Kaupo area in Maui.

Fire teams responded to the scene.

Two passengers suffered minor injuries last Friday when a

tour helicopter made a hard landing on the northern end of the island.
