Of the five injured, one is in critical condition, with two minor injuries and one minor injury, Ornelas said, and the condition of a fifth is currently unknown.
All five are going to a local trauma center, Arnellos added.

Although LASD initially said the helicopter, LASD Air Rescue 5, could carry four people, Deputy Corner later confirmed that five delegates had been involved in the crash and all had been taken to local hospitals.
