A Massachusetts State Police helicopter was forced to land in Wakefield today after warning light came on in the cockpit.

Multiple SP cruisers responded to assist and to secure the scene, as well as a Wakefield fire engine. No injuries were reported on the helicopter or on the ground.

Minutes before the landing, Air 4 had communicated with the Logan Airport tower that they were inbound to the Revere Beach area.
