NEWBERG, Ore. — Two people survived a helicopter crash Sunday afternoon in Newberg, police said.

The crash happened about 4:12 p.m. in a field near Highway 219 and Northeast Bell Road. 

Newberg-Dundee Officer Brian Hagen said both occupants exited the helicopter on their own after the crash, "miraculously without injury," even though the helicopter sustained serious damage.

The pilot, 46-year-old Robert Taylor, from Washington, and his brother, 43-year-old Aaron Taylor, from Beaverton, were flying from Beaverton to McMinnville when the helicopter lost power, forcing Robert to maneuver and emergency landing.
