A Mayo One helicopter is undergoing repairs after a crash last week.

An employee who works with the air medical program at Mayo Clinic Health System tells WEAU the helicopter experienced a hard landing on December 24. There was no patient on-board and there were no serious injuries sustained by the aircraft crew or any bystanders.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are reviewing the case.

Mayo Clinic says the aircraft is at a specialized shop for repairs, and they are currently using a back-up helicopter.

There is no word yet on what caused the crash.
