AUSTIN, Texas - A military helicopter with two people thought to be aboard crashed into waters near Galveston, Texas, on Wednesday, local media reported.

"We're being told it's a military grade helicopter from what the witnesses are telling us," Pasadena Fire Department Marshal David Brannon told Houston TV broadcaster KTRK.

Fire officials were not immediately available for comment.

Two people were aboard the Apache helicopter that went down near the Bayport Cruise Terminal, the Houston Chronicle reported a Coast Guard official as saying.
