6 injured as chopper hits Guatemalan soccer field

A helicopter carrying six people has crashed into a soccer field in Guatemala City, injuring all those aboard.
Fire Department spokesman Mario Cruz says no one on the ground was hurt.
Cruz says the soccer players saw the helicopter pass overhead apparently looking for a place to land, and were able to run to safety.
Three of the occupants of the helicopter were seriously injured. The wreckage of the craft came to rest behind one of the goals on the field.
Officials are investigating reports the private craft may have run out of fuel in Sunday's accident.
Among the injured was former assistant defense minister Mario Siliezar, who was reportedly piloting the craft.
