MANITOBA Conservation confirmed a helicopter made an emergency landing Sunday in Kississing Lake in northern Manitoba.
Both the pilot and passenger got out with no injuries. The chopper tipped nose-first into the water in front of a lakeshore home owned by a Sherridon resident, who took a several photos.
One photo shows only the tail of the chopper still above the waterline.
Kississing Lake is about 100 kilometres northeast of Flin Flon.
The chopper was under contract to the fire program of Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship. Choppers have been working all week battling a forest fire near the area.
An investigation is underway, a Manitoba Conservation spokesman said Sunday night.
