A US Army helicopter crash-landed in South Korea on Monday, due to a failure in the tail rotor.

However, the accident involved no major casualties, authorities were quoted as saying by Yonhap news agency on Monday.

A helicopter for the 24th Division of the US army made an emergency landing on a hillside in Asan, South Chungcheong Province, in the late morning with the two pilots showing no outward sign of injury.

When the rescue team arrived, the pilots, both of whom work for the US army, were waiting outside the aircraft for the rescue helicopter from US Forces Korea to arrive, the officials said.

 The helicopter is also in generally good condition, authorities added.
