Crash of medical helicopter in California kills 4 people.

The Kern County Fire Department says the helicopter was headed from Porterville to a hospital in Bakersfield when it went down in a field about halfway between the two at about 7 p.m.

Officials did not say why the patient was being taken to the hospital, and the names of the dead are being withheld until family members can be informed. There was dense fog and heavy rain in the area and it wasn’t clear whether it caused the crash, but “weather conditions are always a factor,” Valeri said. The weather also made it difficult to find and reach the site, and rescue crews didn’t get there for more than two hours after the helicopter went missing.
