At least five people were injured after a helicopter crashed into a residential home in Newport Beach, Calif.

. The crushed metal sat in a heap on the side of the home, its tail rotor sticking out of the roof of a nearby home and a 6-foot chunk landing in the street in front of yet another house. "One I could see moving an arm". She added that one of the homes that had been hit was up for sale.

She said her house shook when the crash happened. "We were pulling back the aluminum and we said, "We'd have to pull them up out of there" and we could hear the paramedics coming".

"We tried to pry them out but we didn't want to touch them", the neighbor said, who was not identified. "It brings back some old memories".

As this NBC LA video shows, the accident took place in the middle of a gated neighborhood, and emergency crews flocked to the scene to find the aircraft, which had departed from nearby John Wayne airport, in an nearly unrecognizable state. Skid marks were seen on the road leading up to the crash site.

The neighborhood where the helicopter crashed is roughly a mile away from the Orange County airport, where the helicopter had taken off.

The NTSB and Federal Aviation Authority are investigating into what might have caused the crash.

Helicopter video showed a portion of the helicopter covered by a yellow tarp.

Revolution Aviation could not be reached for comment.

No further details were immediately available. "It was a nice helicopter, very well-maintained".
