LINDEN, N.J. (AP) ??? A privately owned helicopter carrying two men was forced to make an emergency landing Sunday in a field on Merck & Co., Inc. property, a Merck spokeswoman said.
Neither of the men were injured, said Gail Driscoll, a spokeswoman for the Whitehouse Station-based drug maker.
The helicopter had taken off from Linden Airport just before noon and made the emergency landing after the aircraft lost power, Driscoll said. According to the spokeswoman, the helicopter incurred damage to its main rotor, tail rotor and tail boom.
The airport is about a mile from Merck's research and development site in Linden, she said.
