COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — In a story Aug. 23 about the crash of a helicopter being used to film a reality TV show, The Associated Press, relying on information from the Houston Chronicle, erroneously reported the show's name and the age of an injured passenger. The show is "Hunt Wicked Close Television," not "A Haunting," and passenger Wayne Bomstad was listed as age 71, not 77.

A corrected version of the story is below:

2 injured in helicopter crash while filming show in Texas

2 injured in helicopter crash in Texas while filming hunting reality show

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Authorities say two men were injured in a helicopter crash while filming an episode of a hunting reality television show in Texas.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says the crash happened Saturday night near a community located about 20 miles east of College Station.

The Houston Chronicle reports two helicopters were filming when one was hit by a gust of wind and spun out of control, striking a tree and dropping on its right side.

The DPS says 36-year-old pilot Jacob Oliver and 71-year-old passenger Wayne Bomstad were taken to a Bryan hospital with injures that were not life-threatening.

The DPS and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.

The outdoor show "Hunt Wicked Close Television" confirmed on its Facebook page it was the reality show involved in the incident.
