TOKYO, Dec. 16 (Xinhua) -- A U.S. Navy helicopter carrying four people made an emergency landing in a coastal city south of Tokyo Monday afternoon, leading to two passengers' bones broken, local media reported.

The MH-60 helicopter landed in an empty lot in Miura, Kanagawa Prefecture, just after 3:30 p.m., the Kanagawa prefectural police said.

According to the fire department, the co-pilot said the crew attempted an emergency landing after losing control of the chopper. It landed on its side, tearing off the main rotor blades and damaging the tail.

There were no reports of further injuries in the surrounding area, while the police have restricted access to the crash site in accordance with a bilateral agreement on off-base accidents involving the U.S. military.

The agreement was signed after a U.S. military helicopter crashed in 2004 at a university in Okinawa Prefecture.
