Nigro said firefighters were on the scene of the crash about four minutes after receiving the 911 call of the crash. They deployed special hoses and pumps to get water from over 700 feet below to fight the fire.

“We were able to put water on the fire quite quickly. Unfortunately, we did find a victim with the helicopter, who, as the mayor stated, we presume is the pilot,” Nigro said.

“What we know is that at approximately 1:32 this afternoon, the helicopter took off from the 34th Street heliport and about 11 minutes later crashed on the roof,” Police Commissioner James O’Neill said. That heliport is located on Manhattan’s East Side. Officials believe – but have not confirmed – the helicopter may have been attempting to return to its home base in Linden, New Jersey, which is why it may have been crossing Manhattan.

(Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images) Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who happened to be at an event nearby and got to the scene quickly, said that a helicopter made a “forced” or “emergency” landing on top of the building. Officials later described the incident as a “hard landing” at a high rate of speed.

“The preliminary information is that there was a helicopter that made a forced landing, an emergency landing or landed on the roof of the building for one reason or another. There was a fire that happened when the helicopter hit the roof. People who were in the building said they felt the building shake. The fire department believes the fire is under control. There may have been casualties involved in people in the helicopter,” Cuomo said. “We don’t know what caused the helicopter to land on top of the building but people in the building itself, nobody has been hurt.”

The damage was primarily contained to the building’s roof. In the midst of the chaos and confusion, Nicholas Estevez found a sharp piece of debris in the rain on the street below, CBS2’s Ali Bauman reported.

“I saw people running like crazy out of the building and people running everywhere,” he said.

“If you’re a New Yorker you have a level of PTSD from 9/11 and I remember that morning all too well. So as soon as you hear an aircraft hit a building, I think my mind goes where every New Yorker’s mind goes,” Cuomo said.

West 50th Street-West 52nd Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues was closed to vehicles and pedestrians, the NYPD said. Other streets near the crash site were closed but later reopened.

President Donald Trump tweeted praise for first responders, saying they did “phenomenal job,” adding “The Trump Administration stands ready should you need anything at all.”
