TV Choppers Collide: “To See It Right In Front Of My Eyes…”

By Chris Ariens 

KSAZ Fox10, was over the scene when the choppers from KNXV (ABC) and KTVK (Ind.) collided this afternoon. A pilot and photographer aboard each chopper were killed.

From the Fox10 pilot: “I have never seen anything like that in my entire life, to see it right in front of my eyes… I can’t tell you…”

From the AP: “TV viewers did not actually witness the accident because cameras aboard both aircraft were pointed at the ground. But they saw images from one of the helicopters break up and begin to spin before the station abruptly switched to the studio.”
