A PLA helicopter has crashed at Tai Lam Country Park during a training session, and there's no word on what happened to the crew on board.

It's believed to be the first incident of its kind in Hong Kong since the 1997 handover.

The Security Bureau said in a statement on Tuesday that it'd received a report from the local PLA garrison about the crash the day before.

According to the statement, no local resident was injured and no homes were damaged.

The local PLA garrison will investigate the crash, and the Security Bureau will follow up on the case.
