The helicopter itself sustained signifcant damage, including a broken tail piece. Curtis said he wasn’t sure Saturday afternoon what exactly caused the crash or how high above the ground the helicopter was when it went down.

The Federal Aviation Administration and Logan police will continue to investigate, Curtis said.
