WALLISVILLE, Texas (AP) - Officials say a Chinook helicopter rescued a smaller military helicopter from a muddy field near Houston after it had mechanical troubles and made an emergency landing.

The Texas Military Department of Public Affairs say the Texas Army National Guard AH-64D Apache was on a training mission late Tuesday when it encountered problems and was forced to land in the rice field near Wallisville, about 30 miles east of Houston.

Nobody was hurt.

On Thursday, a massive Chinook helicopter lifted the disabled chopper from the mud and carried it 16 miles to the Baytown Airport.
