Two people were killed when a news helicopter crashed in Seattle, Washington on Tuesday morning. A third person was critically injured and rushed to the hospital.
The chopper fell to the ground just yards from the base of the Seattle Space Needle and struck two parked cars.
All three vehicles burst into flames. Firemen were able to contain the blaze, putting it out completely within half an hour.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the people in this crash and the brave first responders who came to their rescue.
