Helicopter Crashes on Roof of Manhattan Building, Killing Pilot

The memories of 9/11 were compounded as the building was evacuated. Employees streamed down staircases as firefighters rushed in, heading to the roof.

But Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who arrived quickly at the scene, said there was no indication of terrorism.
Mr. Cuomo acknowledged that the initial reports had jarred nerves. “If you’re a New Yorker, you have a level of PTSD, right, from 9/11,” he said. “I remember that morning all too well.”
But in contrast to that bright, clear day, the weather was dismal on Monday. The visibility was little more than a mile, and the cloud ceiling was low. Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill said the helicopter had been flying through restricted airspace. Mayor Bill de Blasio said investigators would have to establish whether the helicopter had been in contact with air traffic controllers at La Guardia Airport.
