SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Police say no one was hurt when a state police helicopter made a hard landing Tuesday morning.

Utah Department of Public Safety officials say four people were aboard the craft when it went down while helping with an antelope capture near the south-central Utah town of Bicknell.

Officials say the helicopter was flying low, about 20 feet above the ground, when the pilot had a loss of lift that forced him to make a controlled hard landing.

The helicopter was damaged and the Federal Aviation Administration has been notified.
