1. “I didn’t see it, but I felt it.” At least one dead after helicopter crash on top of a New York City skyscraper.
A helicopter has made a crash landing onto the roof of a Manhattan skyscraper, killing at least one person and sending a plume of smoke skyward from the top of the building.
The crash occurred shortly before 2pm local time on Monday, on a rainy day at the AXA Equitable Center on Seventh Avenue.
Dozens of emergency vehicles swarmed the busy area, a few blocks north of Times Square.
“My message to New Yorkers is, to be very clear, there was no act of terror here,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says following a helicopter crash atop a Manhattan building. https://t.co/9hoTVzXKK3 pic.twitter.com/uBcrALzoMV
