    News Helicopter Crashes By Seattle's Space Needle, Killing Two

    By Elizabeth Chuck and Mike Brunker

    A news helicopter crashed in downtown Seattle Tuesday morning, killing two aboard and injuring one on the ground, officials said.

    The chopper, operated by local television network KOMO, an ABC affiliate, and also used by KING5, an NBC affiliate, went down near Seattle's Space Needle at about 7:40 a.m. PT. Three vehicles were set ablaze after the crash, sending large plumes of smoke into the air.

    Officials didn't know what caused the crash...

    My cousin was at a red light 100 feet away! He's lucky the light was red.

    Strange noise, then fiery crash: 2 dead as copter falls near Seattle's Space Needle

    By Tom Watkins and Greg Botelho, CNN

    updated 7:18 AM EDT, Wed March 19, 2014

    (CNN) -- Several times a day, helicopters land and take off from the helipad above Seattle's Fisher Plaza.

    But this time was different.

    The sound -- what the lead investigator described as an "unusual noise" -- gave away Tuesday morning that something was amiss. What followed immediately afterward proved it, as a news helicopter tumbled to the ground and burst into flames, with those flames spreading to several parked cars in its path.

    "I looked and the helicopter was almost immediately pitched sideways and off balance," construction worker Bo Bain told CNN affiliate KING. "And he kind of just nose-dove over the trees, and clipped the top of the trees and crashed just on the other side of the street there."

    The two people aboard the helicopter died in the crash, and another person who'd been in one of the three vehicles that caught fire was critically burned, officials said...
