A source close to the situation explained:
WARNING: IF YOU ARE TERRIFIED OF FLYING, YOU MAY NOT WANT TO WATCH THIS!
This is insane! It may just be the scariest thing we've seen in a looong time.
This helicopter's tail rotor blades get caught in cables causing a horrifying crash. The thing SPLITS IN TWO!
And amazing enough, the New Zealand pilot was rescued and able to walk away practically scratch free.
Yikes! Yeesh! OMG! Wow.
