I truly hope it was simply an accident and no one else is hurt. I find it odd that it happened 2 blacks from another very famous hi rise.

Being reported as a hard landing with one injury.
So far no fatalities.

Helicopter traffic has been banned from landing on rooftops in the city since the seventies.
This guy was probably flying over the river and got into some kind of trouble.

Sorry, I see one fatality now being reported.

Once upon a time helicopter traffic was common over Manhattan.
when I was a kid I took a commercial flight from Kennedy airport to the Pan Am building in Manhattan and back to the airport again.

They are saying this is going to be investigated because the bird did not belong in that area and the proximity to trump tower.
NTSB is not on the scene yet.

If it wasn't for that ban then a lot of people could have been saved from the WTC in 2011.

Hold on. You mislead us.

The Chopper ban is only on weekends.

Why do you do it Silly?

Only commercial flights have been banned.
Emergency copters and police copters are still allowed.

yes me too.
Hopefully we will find out what happened.
Thankfully he did not wind up on the street.

No they couldn't have. A few maybe, but the heat and smoke would have made getting a helicopter on the roof incredibly dangerous if not impossible. Not to mention, IIRC the roof doors were kept locked.

If it had been possible they would have ignored the ban and done it.

Fair point. What ifs are always haunting.

Emergency helicopters were never banned. Only commercial flights.
There used to be quite a trade taking the mad men from the airport into the city in fifteen minutes.
It can take an hour by car during certain hours of the day.
