At about 8.40pm earlier today, a helicopter crashed in the northern areas of London, shaking the tranquillity of the neighbourhood. The aircraft, carrying a pilot and three passengers, tragically plummeted to the ground, igniting a large fire upon impact. The incident prompted swift action from vigilant residents who immediately dialled 999, alerting emergency responders to the incident.

As flames engulfed the aircraft, thick plumes of smoke billowed into the air, the gravity of the situation became apparent. Fuel leaked can be seen together with multiple casualties around the wreckage.

As Emergency Response Team (ERT) arrives on scene, a cordon was immediately set in place. A fleet of ambulances and response vehicles can be seen making way on scene. Working tirelessly, they swiftly mobilize to combat the raging flames and to extricate the injured.

Amidst the efforts of Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), despite the valiant attempts to resuscitate, the pilot had succumbed to his injuries on the scene. However, there was a glimmer of hope as all other casualties were successfully extracted from the wreckage, and was transported to receive urgent medical attention.
