A rock launched from the ground struck a Border Patrol helicopter, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing in a vacant lot, the Associated Press reports.

Whoever threw the rock could not be found, CBP said in a statement.

The two-member crew of the American Eurocopter AS350 were not injured when they landed safely in the border town of Roma.

The crew was helping Border Patrol agents in Roma when the incident happened, the AP reported.
