Helicopter Crash in Auckland

A helicopter crashed while installing a Christmas tree in Auckland, New Zealand. The crash was very dramatic and it is amazing no one was seriously hurt.

The helicopter was putting up the Telecom Christmas tree on Auckland’s waterfront, when it appeared to clip a wire and spin out of control.

Footage shows the rear end of the chopper snapping off and the pilot being thrown about as the wreckage hits the ground.

Pilot Greg Gribble, who has 20 years experience, was able to walk away from the crash with only minor injuries.
