One person is dead in New York after a helicopter made an emergency crash landing on top of a high rise building.
Police say the chopper made a “hard landing” on the roof of the 54 story building in midtown Manhattan Monday about two blocks from Times Square.
Dozens of New York police officers and firefighters are responding to the incident. Governor Andrew Cuomo is also at the scene, and told reporters a blaze sparked by the crash is now under control.
Evacuations are underway and roads have been shut down in the area as authorities investigate the incident.
More information will become available after an update from National Transportation Safety Board.
