HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) – Several people called Hamburg Police when they saw a helicopter hovering low to the ground in the Lake Shore area of town.

Officers say the helicopter had been hired by utility companies to inspect power lines. Utility companies often use visual inspections from the air to determine the condition of transmission lines.
