The fiery aftermath of the police helicopter crash in Charlottesville, VA was captured on video obtained by TMZ.
The chopper exploded in a ball of flames in a residential neighborhood Saturday afternoon. The person who shot the video lives across the street from where the helicopter crashed. He tells TMZ, he heard a loud noise coming from the helicopter and felt it was hovering too low.
The man saw the chopper “spinning around violently in the air” and suddenly a piece of the tail broke off and it flipped upside down and nosedived in the ground.
Two people died in the crash.
