The pilot of a helicopter died after it crashed into a skyscraper in Manhattan. The 54-floor office building close to Times Square shook from the impact. The crash sparked a rooftop fire, which was brought under control. Some were evacuated from the tower.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said

"New Yorkers have a level of PTSD from 9/11 when they hear news of an aircraft crash in Manhattan."

The Agusta A109E helicopter crashed into the building, killing the pilot identified as Tim McCormack.
