CAROL LIN, CNN ANCHOR: Good evening. I'm Carol Lin at CNN center in Atlanta. We have this breaking news and a picture to show you of a U.S. military helicopter which crashed about 500 feet from the Banda Aceh Airport. 10 people were on board. We have confirmed that they are alive, but with significant injuries.
They crashed while on approach to try to do a landing. They crashed in a rice patti. We're keeping a tab on those survivors. Once again, with significant injuries.
