Washington, United States – A helicopter crashed into a townhouse complex in the state of Virginia on Sunday, leaving one person dead and the building ripped apart and damaged by fire, local media said.

The incident occurred in Williamsburg, in the state’s southeast and not far from Norfolk, which is home to a naval station, which supports the US Navy’s Atlantic Fleet.

The Daily Press newspaper quoted Virginia State Police as saying there was “one confirmed fatality within the residential structure.”

WAVY-TV showed pictures of the low-rise residential complex, with much of its roof sheared off, exposing a gaping hole in the structure.
