Mumbai: An Indian Coast Guard helicopter on a routine patrol crash landed in Raigad district of Maharashtra on Saturday afternoon, injuring a woman pilot, the Navy said.

All the four crew members of the Coast Guard in the chopper were rescued from the scene of the accident by the Navy and flown to naval hospital 'Asvini' at Mumbai, a Navy officer said, without elaborating.
