Helicopter Crashes - Original HD footage
***(C) COPYRIGHT STRICTLY ENFORCED*** FEEL FREE TO LINK TO THIS VIDEO BUT PLEASE NOTE THAT UNLAWFUL RE-UPLOADS TO PUBLIC WEBSITES WILL BE TAKEN DOWN, THIS INCLUDES FACEBOOK, REDDIT AND IMGUR !!! Whist erecting a seven story high structure to be used as a Christmas tree, the helicopters rotor struck a cable causing the aircraft to crash to the ground. The Pilot was helped from the crumpled wreckage with minor injuries. Both of my Panasonic P2HD camera's were recording at the same time, even though I go to re-position myself because I didn't like the look of the cable near the rotor, my camera I am carrying is still recording. My other static wide view camera caught me walking across the frame, you can see the guy tug on the cable just as I go past him. After the impact, and seeing that the wreck had not burst in to flames, I'm the guy in the yellow hi-vis, white hat and blue jeans that hops in to the cab to help get the unconscious pilot out along with the guy who originally pulled on the cable. I have removed the "comments" option as some people have been posting ridiculous comments, this was all just an accident, and by the grace of God, no one was badly injured.

This is a Turbine Enstrom Helicopter on the Heli Pad of a Greenpeace ship some where off the coast of Ireland. One of the deck straps has not been released correctly, with what was very nearly disastrous consequence. Pilot skill and quick thinking saved the day.
