PARKING SPOT: Helicopter Parks On Main Street

People trying to pass through downtown Marshalltown were in for a bit of surprise Thursday.

East Main Street had to be shut down for most of the day while a helicopter was parked in the road.

An air ambulance arrived at Marshalltown Medical and Surgical Center, but was unable to land in its regular spot because another helicopter was landing at the same time.

Instead, it landed on East Main, where as of 7:30 p.m. it is currently stalled. Mechanics are there working on the helicopter. 

The Marshalltown Police Department is asking residents to continue to avoid the area between the 300-500 block.
