Southfield (WWJ) -- An unwelcome passenger aboard Chopper 950 Thursday morning. WWJ Newsradio 950 Traffic Reporter Bill Szumanski was in the helicopter when a seagull crashed through a window and landed between his feet.
The pilot of the chopper, Joel Alexander, throttled down to a safer speed.
"Because of the wind that is rushing in through the open window, you really don't want maintain the hundred, 115 miles per hour we would normally be at," Szumanski said shortly after the helicopter landed.
Listen to what Szumanski told WWJ's Roberta Jasina and Joe Donovan: AUDIO
The bubble of the chopper is made of plexiglass.
Everyone in the chopper is okay, except for the seagull who unfortunately was killed. The aircraft will be out of commission for a few days while repairs are made.
