Helicopter crash atop Manhattan skyscraper
June 11 , 2019
A helicopter that took off from the eastern side of Manhattan in New York, from the 34th street heliport, crashed on the rooftop of a midtown Manhattan skyscraper on June 10, 2019 shortly before 2 pm. It set off alarm bells in the office building, and led to mass exodus of people working on different floors as panic response to the tremors that were felt shortly after the incident. The pilot Tim McCormack had taken off when the visibility was low due to the falling rain. He lost his life in the unfortunate mishap, that also set off a fire on top of the 54 floor building.
