1 Died In An Helicopter Crash In New York City

The pilot of a helicopter passed on after it crash-arrived over a high rise in Manhattan, fire authorities state.

The episode started a housetop fire, which was immediately doused. A few laborers were cleared from the pinnacle, yet none were harmed.

The place of business near Times Square shook from the effect, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

New Yorkers, he included, have "a dimension of PTSD from 9/11" when they hear updates on a flying machine crash in Manhattan.

The pilot has been named by nearby media as Tim McCormack.

He was the main individual on board the twin-motor Agusta A109E helicopter, said the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The occurrence occurred at around 14:00 (18:00 GMT) on a blustery and foggy Monday on Seventh Avenue.

Senator Cuomo said after primer reports that there was no sign of treachery.

"There was a helicopter that made a constrained landing, crisis landing, or arrived on the top of the structure for some reason," he told columnists at the scene.

"There was a flame that happened when the helicopter hit the rooftop. Individuals that were in the structure said that they felt the structure shake."

He included: "In case you're a New Yorker, you have a dimension of PTSD, ideal, from 9/11. What's more, I recollect that morning great.

"So when you hear a flying machine hit a structure, I think my psyche goes where each New Yorker's brain goes."

Talking at the White House on Monday, US President Donald Trump said the accident was "a major catastrophe" and "an exceptionally dismal occasion".
