Helicopter crashes on to roof of a skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan sparking mass evacuation

The New York Police Department closed West 51st Street and West 52nd Street between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue. "This could have been a much worse accident", he said.

"I couldn't tell if the smoke preceded the helicopter coming over, or if it was from the helicopter crashing into the building", he said.

"I didn't see the chopper but could feel it go by".

The Federal Aviation Administration said that the helicopter was an Agusta A109E.

The nytimes revealed McCormack worked for the helicopter's owner, Daniele Bodini, who he said commuted to the city from upstate NY. The only indication was a helicopter had to do an emergency or a hard landing, or crashed onto the rooftop of the building, causing a fire.

Frantic employees squeezed into the stairwell, hurrying down flight after flight, not knowing that a helicopter had just crashed on top of their building, sparking a fire and leaving one person dead. Buildings in Manhattan were evacuated and many remain so as of publishing time. "McCormick is an experienced pilot and very well respected in the aircraft community", said Paul Dudley, airport manager in Linden, New Jersey, where the helicopter flew out of.

Irving will become free agent
He was named an All-Star for the sixth time in seven seasons and made the All-NBA Second Team for the first time in his career. Boston had expected this move, Charania reports, and now will gear up to make its pitch to keep Irving in the fold.

"It felt like you were just standing there, and someone takes their hand and just shoves you", he said.

A helicopter crashed into a Manhattan high-rise on Monday afternoon, stoking fears of another 9/11-style terror attack. Firefighters climbed to the top of the 54-floor building to put out the three-alarm fire.

President Donald Trump also commended the work of first responders, tweeting "THANK YOU for all you do 24/7/365!"

He had been hired to fly an Agusta A109E helicopter for a private owner, Daniele Bodini, who commuted between the city and upstate NY.

Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said people who were in the building felt the building shake.

No debris was visible on the pavement or road below the scene of the AXA Equitable building, which is about 750ft and more than 50 storeys high. "The NTSB (National Transport Safety Board) will be in charge of the investigation and will determine (the) probable cause of the accident".

The building at that location was purchased by the California Public Employees' Retirement System for $1.9 billion in January 2016 with partner CommonWealth Partners of Los Angeles. CommonWealth office manager LeAnn Holsapple said the company had "no comment at this time".
