TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say a helicopter lost power over a northeast Oklahoma lake but all three people on board were unharmed.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the pilot experienced a power failure at about 11:30 a.m. Sunday and had to put the aircraft down in Keystone Lake just south of the U.S. 64 bridge
A boat in the area brought the three people to shore.
The OHP says the aircraft rolled and then sank into deep water. It wasn't immediately known where the helicopter was going or where it took off.
Officials say the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate. The OHP says a plan for getting the copter out of the lake will be formulated.
