Helicopter crash-lands on building in NYC

A helicopter crash-landed onto the roof of a Midtown skyscraper just minutes after takeoff in Manhattan Monday, killing the pilot in the “obliterated” wreckage, officials said.

The Agusta A109E aircraft made a hard landing in heavy rain and dense clouds on top of the 54-story AXA Equitable Center on Seventh Ave. at W. 51st St. about 1:45 p.m., 11 minutes after he went aloft from the East 34th Street Heliport, officials said.

A fire erupted immediately after the crash on the roof, which was not equipped with a helicopter landing pad, law enforcement sources said.

The force of the terrifying landing onto the roof was so intense “the area was actually sunken down,” said Adrienne Walsh, a lieutenant from Rescue 1.
