Amateur video of a U.S. military Apache helicopter crashing into a snowy mountainside in Afghanistan has surfaced on YouTube.
A spokesman for the U.S.-led International Security Assistance Force said the video was shot on Feb. 6 in southeast Afghanistan. Military officials said no one was injured or killed in the crash, but the $20 million copter was totaled.
The video shows the helicopter swooping low, narrowly missing a building and crashing into the snow.
The cause of the crash is unknown. The Army is investigating the accident.
