Helicopter in Fiery Crash Near Seattle Space Needle


At least two people are dead after a Seattle news helicopter crashed in a burning wreck just steps from the city’s iconic Space Needle.

The crash, which also struck at least two vehicles, occurred Tuesday morning on Seattle’s Broad Street, near the office of local news station KOMO-TV, which operated the news helicopter. Early news reports were not clear on what became of the helicopter’s crew, but the Seattle Fire Department confirmed at least two people were killed at the site of the crash. KOMO-TV reporter Kelly Koopmans reports a witness said one person on fire was seen crawling out of a car.

Emergency crews immediately rushed to the scene.

Witnesses snapped photographs of the wreckage in flames, emitting a plume of black smoke, and later smoldering.
