MARTINSBURG, Pa. (KDKA/AP) Police are looking for whoever shined a laser into the cockpit of a UPS plane flying over western Pennsylvania, temporarily blinding the pilots.


Authorities say it happened Tuesday night above Blair County. State Police say two pilots on a Philadelphia-bound flight from Pittsburgh were hurt when a green laser illuminated the cockpit.


The pilots were treated for their injuries at a suburban Philadelphia hospital.

Couldn't their GPS equipment record the location of the laser?

It can record where they were when the laser struck them. Can't tell them where it came from.

The laser episodes seem to be getting more frequent.
