One death as helicopter crashes near William & Mary in Williamsburg, Va.

91-year-old woman killed when helicopter crashes into Williamsburg condo

State police had said earlier in the evening they were still searching for the pilot.

Danylko's family said through Virginia State Police that the 91-year-old served as secretary to the president of the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) for many years.

Authorities are responding to an aviation crash, possibly involving a helicopter, in a residential area in Virginia.

"This helicopter came over but it was really low, and when it hit the townhome it caused a huge ball of fire and a big, huge explosion", said Suzanne Webber, who lives in Bristol Commons.

The crash is under investigation, but state police released a statement saying "federal, state and local police, with the assistance of the Williamsburg Fire Department, are working to locate and identify the pilot of the helicopter".

Firefighters spent several hours putting out the blaze.

WAVY-TV showed pictures of the low-rise residential complex, with much of its roof sheared off, exposing a gaping hole in the structure.

The National Safety Transportation Board has scheduled a media update for 2:30 p.m. Monday.

The accident took place in a residential area near the campus of William and Mary, which warned people to stay away from the area.

The Federal Aviation Administration tweeted that Aviation Safety Inspectors arrived in Williamsburg at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday.
