    Chopper down: Minister's open door policy under scrutiny

    A helicopter carrying Minister for Tourism Martin Cullen was forced to make an emergency landing in Killarney this afternoon.

    ...
    It is believed that a door of the helicopter fell off as it flew over Killarney National Park at Castlerosse outside the town.

    Scary event with a safe outcome. Isn't this the second incident of a door falling from a helicopter shortly after take off in recent months?
