A Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department helicopter made an emergency landing in a residential neighborhood in Lakewood on Sunday night.

After landing, the crew found a bird had hit the cabin above the pilot canopy. After assessing the damage, the crew was able to fly the aircraft back to a sheriff's bureau.
