MIDDLEBURG, Fla. - An emergency helicopter landing in Florida could be linked to Lexington, Kentucky.

A military helicopter had to make an emergency landing at an elementary school in Clay County, Florida.

The Sheriff there told reporters at the scene to direct all questions to Lexington, Kentucky.

The helicopter was based out of Savannah, Georgia. According to the Sheriff, it belongs to the Army. He mentioned mechanical issues with the chopper but didn't elaborate.

The helicopter was seen circling Middleburg, Florida around 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14.

No one was injured in the emergency landing.

Many have asked if the helicopter was serviced at Bluegrass Station in Avon.

A spokesperson for the Bluegrass Army Depot told WKYT he was unaware of any connection between the Central Kentucky complex and the helicopter that crashed in Florida.
