Jumping From a Burning Helicopter Left Two Men Killed, and Two Others Injured

Two men died and two others were injured on Tuesday in upstate New York after jumping from a burning helicopter.

The report says they jumped nearly 40 feet after the aircraft got caught up in power lines and burst into flames.

The Clinton County Sheriffs and witnesses rushed to help the victims. Deputies performing CPR took life-saving measures on the man, according to Clinton County Emergency Services director Eric Day.

Another person struggled to breathe, has open wound and chest pain as a result of the fall.

The surveillance camera showed spotted fires burning both on the wires and the ground. Shortly after the victims jumped from the helicopter, it crashed to the ground.

One of the witnesses said first she thought it’s a transformer that had blown up. Later she realized it was something else, as she got closer.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the helicopter accident.

An official wrote in his post about his great sense of sorrow for Jeremy’s family and the fact that Jeremy passed away.

A very touching Facebook post shared by his girlfriend says, ‘’we miss you baby’’.
