A LifeFlight helicopter returning to a Lewiston hospital on the 17th of April made a precautionary landing in a field off Winn and Cross Roads in Cumberland. There were no patients on board, and the pilot elected to make the unscheduled landing as a safety precaution after a master caution light illuminated indicating a problem with an engine. The landing was made without incident and there was no damage to the helicopter.
