It is not clear when the damage occurred, but a MedFlight
official says he believes it happened while the helicopter was in
flight, not on the ground.
Television station WBNS reports that no one was injured in when
the aircraft was hit. The hole was found on the helicopter's right
side just below the aft clamshell doors. Investigators reportedly
found what appeared to be a bullet under the helo's floor. The
investigation is ongoing.
