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)

Yeah the video shots were not pretty…

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.

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

Did he jump? Nobody is 8ft.

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