The Federal Aviation Administration says the Robinson R22 helicopter ended up in a marsh area just west of the tarmac at Ocean City Municipal Airport about 9:30 a.m. Friday. It apparently had taken off a short time earlier.
Authorities say the student pilot, 64-year-old Carol Gray of Bear, Delaware, and the instructor, 62-year-old Harvey Shubart, of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, walked away from the helicopter and were treated at a hospital for undisclosed injuries that weren't considered life-threatening.
The helicopter's rotors were damaged.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the FAA.
