IRVING (AP) - Investigators say four people on a helicopter have escaped injury when the chopper made a rough emergency landing on a golf course.

A preliminary report from the Federal Aviation Administration says the engine apparently quit and the chopper landed Sunday afternoon at Las Colinas Country Club in Irving.

Authorities say the helicopter, registered to Lana Air LLC of Mead, Okla., suffered tail damage when it landed on a fairway.

Investigators are trying to determine if strong winds played a role in the accident. The National Weather Service says gusts in the Dallas area reached nearly 40 mph on Sunday afternoon.
