Authorities in Modesto, California told one neighborhood  that mechanical problems caused the pilot of a helicopter to make and emergency landing on an elementary school playground.

The pilot told reporters that he had just fueled up at Modesto Airport, after takeoff he started to experience mechanical problems at 800 ft in the air and had no other safe place to land then at El Vista Elementary School.

The pilot still had a risky landing barely missing nearby trees and a soccer goal, the 2 seat helicopter hit the ground hard while landing, luckily no one was injured.
