Some high school soccer players in Crown Point, New York, had an unexpected visitor today. A wayward National Guard helicopter aiding firefighters in the Adirondacks set down on the athletic fields at Central High School in Crown Point around 9:45 a.m. Coach Mary McGinnis says the girls saw the chopper circle the fields several times, and she moved them to a far corner when it became apparent the helicopter planned to land.

Sargeant Don Moore, a member of the chopper’s crew, says the craft was supposed to pick up supplies for firefighters battling several stubborn forest fires in the area. The crew got directions to the town’s volunteer firehouse and took off again.
