A helicopter crashed near a bridge in northern Beijing about 0300 GMT on Monday, the official English-language China Daily newspaper said on its website.
The paper gave no information beyond identifying the site of the incident, near the Jixiangsi bridge. A video clip of what appeared to be a crashed helicopter was circulating on Chinese social media, such as the Twitter-like Weibo.
Reuters could not immediately verify the report or the video clip.
