If you were following the story of the crop duster that crashed, the pilot is okay.  La Salle County Sheriff’s Deputies say Ernie Smith of Forth Worth, Texas was spraying fields near Leonore early Monday morning when his crop duster helicopter went down in a cornfield.  Smith walked away with minor injuries.

Smith was flying for Henderickson Flying Service in Rochelle.

The Federal Aviation Administration and Sheriff’s Office are investigating.
