BREAKING

BEFORE THIS CONTINUES PLEASE BE AWARE THIS IS A REAL WORLD SITUATION

First responders are responding to a helipad after an individual was decapitated by a helicopter. The helicopter was a Bell 222. Once I hear more about the individual and the investigation I’ll share more


#2

I’m seeing this right? Decapitated…by a helicopter?


#3

Yes, that’s what happened


#4

Yikes… That is not good. Lets see how this develops.


#5

Oh geez. Mattheus’ Aviation news special report here we come!


#6

From what it sounds like the individual was killed in front of the helicopter.

This was a Bell 230 involved in the incident as seen here (Not the actual helicopter)


#7

…yikes. I don’t even know what to make of that…how unfortunate! :(


#8

Ouch… it’s hard for me to think about what happened without cringing or grimacing… I hope for the best.


#9

Wow that’s shocking…I’m at a loss for words


#10

Tell me about it specially as a helicopter is taxiing and that happens. Never a good site .


#11

Just thinking about it gives me pretty bad images. Imagine being there…


#12

Yeah the video shots were not pretty…


#13

This is not good… Not a very pleasant way to be killed. I do want to know how his head and the blade made contact, the spinning thing on top should be far enough from your head.


#14

There’s about a 12ft clearance, and then when it’s lowered it’s about 8ft from what a friend of mine who flew 222/230s says


#15

Did he jump? Nobody is 8ft.


#16

Whoa, heavy news tonight. Um, here is an article, talking about the tragic incident. With some images.

Feel free to look up other articles.


#17

#18

#19
