Helicopter Crash

In Auckland, New Zealand, a helicopter became entangled in wires and crashed while installing a Christmas tree on the local waterfront. That’s a sure-fire way to dampen your holiday spirit.

As the helicopter hovers in place, its rotors become hopelessly ensnared and the craft snaps in two, plummeting 25 feet to the ground. Despite the horrific crash, the pilot escaped without significant injury.
