A pilot died, and a scare ensued after a helicopter crashed on the roof of a Manhattan sky scraper Monday. The crash brought back a scare to 9/11, and authorities are investigation the incident.
A Monday helicopter crash on the roof of a Manhattan skyscraper set in motion a 9/11 type scare.
The helicopter, which only had the pilot on board, crashed into the AXA Equitable building and sparked a fire.
Office workers in the building reported a mad evacuation, as the entire 750 foot building shook.
Authorities are investigating as to how the incident happened, as well as to how the helicopter was flying in the high security zone over Manhattan in heavy weather.

787 7th ave, #midtown NYC. We’re 1 block south. 20 mins ago there was a loud sound like a too-low #helicopter & I looked up and saw sheet of flame on roof and then smoke. News reports saying helicopter/small plane crash onto roof which would be consistent with what I heard/saw. pic.twitter.com/swY3ksLskH
