Cameraman dies 3 weeks after Pa. helicopter crash

A cameraman for a reality TV show has died three weeks after being injured in a helicopter crash near a Pennsylvania university.

A county coroner tells The Indiana Gazette that 33-year-old Greg Jacobsen, of Thunder Bay, Ontario, died Monday.

Jacobsen was hospitalized April 30 after a helicopter crashed into two buildings just off the campus of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He was part of a crew filming a show for the G4 cable network called "Campus PD."

Cambria County Coroner Dennis Kwiatkowski says Jacobsen developed respiratory problems during his recovery.

Three other people were on the helicopter when it crashed while the crew filmed Indiana borough police cars. The pilot and another crew member also were hospitalized.
