Incredible Video: NZ Chopper Crashes While Setting Up Christmas Tree

(By Jonathon M. Seidl, The Blaze) - A New Zealand helicopter pilot is lucky to be alive today, after he survived an horrific crash while trying to set up a large Christmas tree. The Daily Mail describes what happened:

Television viewers in New Zealand watched in horror as the blades of Greg Gribble‘s helicopter became tangled in cables attached to scaffolding on Auckland’s waterfront.

Dramatic footage shows the rear of the helicopter snapping, flinging Mr Gribble out of the front door of the helicopter, then slamming him back through its side door.

The aircraft then dropped 25ft to the ground.
