Emergency officials responded to helicopter crash at the Kenosha Regional Airport around 4:30 p.m. Sunday.
Kenosha police say there was only one man in the helicopter when it crashed. That man was taken by Flight for Life to a Milwaukee hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The helicopter crashed west of the air traffic control tower, landing on its side.
