LONDON (AP) - Scottish authorities say there are numerous casualties and people remain trapped inside a Glasgow pub after a police helicopter crashed into its roof.
Authorities early Saturday said search and rescue teams were on the scene at The Clutha pub in the city center.
Officials say a number of people have been rescued and taken to hospitals but that it is too soon to comment on the number of casualties. Scotland's leader, Alex Salmond, warned that fatalities are likely.
Asst. Chief Officer Lewis Ramsay says rescuers have made contact with some people still in the pub and are working hard to stabilize the building and "get people out."
