Helicopter Crash

At about 8am this morning a helicopter crashed in central London! It struck a crane on top of The Tower, One St George Wharf, and exploded. Very misty conditions almost certainly caused the crash. The badly damaged crane is now dangling down the side of the building. Wreckage of the helicopter landed on cars below and spread fire over the road and neighbouring buildings. The pilot and a person on the ground were killed. Nine injured people were treated at the scene or were taken to hospital, one seriously injured. Firefighters rescued one man from a burning car and brought fires under control within 25 minutes, Considering this happened during the morning rush hour, it's amazing so few were injured.
