Copter for Hugh Jackman film hits Mich. power line

SHERIDAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - September 21, 2010

Huron County Sheriff Kelly J. Hanson told the Huron Daily Tribune of Bad Axe that no injuries were reported after the Sunday evening incident in Huron County's Sheridan Township, about 90 miles north of Detroit.

A section of a nearby road was closed for a short time.

Hanson says the helicopter was equipped with a front-mounted camera. Hanson says the helicopter hooked the electrical wire, then seemed to have "directional control issues" before safely flying away.

"Real Steel" is a futuristic drama about robot boxing. The DreamWorks Studios' film is scheduled for a 2011 release.
