The helicopter that crashed into a New York City skyscraper was flying in heavy rain in airspace that is supposed to be off-limits.

A flight restriction in effect since President Donald Trump took office bans aircraft from flying below 3,000 feet (914 meters) within a 1-mile radius of Trump Tower, which is just a few blocks from the crash site.

Fire Department officials say the helicopter pilot died when the craft hit the top of the AXA Equitable building at around 2 p.m.

There were no other reports of injuries.

It wasn’t clear why the pilot flew into that part of Manhattan, but authorities called it an emergency landing.

Trump said in a tweet that he’d been briefed on the crash. He said first responders on the scene did a “phenomenal job.”

The New York City Fire Department says the pilot of a helicopter that crashed on a Manhattan skyscraper rooftop has died.

The Fire Department says the helicopter crash landed on the top of the tower, which isn’t far from Rockefeller Center and Times Square.

It does not appear anyone else was on board when the crash occurred at around 2 p.m.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters that a fire began when the aircraft hit, but it is under control. Cuomo said it shook the building. He said there are no reports of injuries of people in the tower.

It was not immediately known what type of helicopter was involved.

Videos posted by onlookers showed emergency vehicles in the street, but no obvious damage to the skyscraper.

The New York City Fire Department is responding to a report of a helicopter crash on the roof of a skyscraper in midtown Manhattan.

The Fire Department said in a tweet Monday that the helicopter appears to have crash landed on the top of the tower, which isn’t far from Rockefeller Center and Times Square.

An FDNY spokesman said one person was injured. The crash happened at around 2 p.m.

AS FAKE AS THE PLANES THAT CRASHED INTO THE WTC ON 911.

2 months ago

This is so much B U L L S H I T ! How do they get so many photography actors to line up "behind" the concerned leaders to take pictures of their backs ? CBS had pictures of the crash site and there was nothing but little bitty pieces of unrecognizable aluminum, as if the chopper was traveling at wel over 900 mph. This is a FAKE ASS NEWS STORY. A Psyop. Our Government is a load of shit for participating in things like this. I hope a helicopter gets them all.

It has since been published that the pilot´s name was Timothy J. McCormick who lived in Clinton Corners, NY. Also he was a respected Fire Chief with the Clinton Corners (Dutchess County) NY Fire Department. He was a hero. May he Rest In Peace.

Can we have a serious conversation about banning all guns after a tragedy like this?

The helicopter pilot gave up his life so no one else was injured or killed. It crashed on top. Not into.

They sell Saki from Fukushima Japan at Union Square Wines & Spirits ---140 4th Avenue, New York, NY. Fukushima nuclear power plant blew up and spewed radioactive contamination all over the rice paddies there. Was hoping the copter crashed there. I looked it up, but it was a miss. Too bad.

anyone think the people of New York got memories of 9/11 cause of this? We're all talking about why and about this crash I don't see anyone talking about how the people of new york are taking this, when I look at this, all I see is 9/11 on a much smaller scale, I don't believe this was a terrorist attack but even though I was only 6 months old when those two planes crashed into the twin towers but when I think of this, all I can think about is 9/11
