Hugh Jackman’s new movie Real Steel briefly caused chaos in rural Michigan on Sunday night when a camera helicopter hooked a power line.
No one was injured but the incident closed a main road and cut off a power supply to Sheridan Township.

Local Sheriff Kelly J. Hanson tells the Huron Daily Tribune the helicopter, which was equipped with a front-mounted camera, experienced “directional control issues” after snagging the power line.
