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.
