SULPHUR, La. (AP) — Two California contractors are dead after falling from a helicopter in southwest Louisiana.
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Myers says it happened about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in Sulphur. Myers says both men were working on electrical lines from a helicopter when apparently their safety harness rubbed against the lines, causing it to snap and causing them to fall about 100 feet to the ground.
