Glasgow Helicopter Crash
#1
Looks like a Scotland police Heli has gone down in Glasgow on top of a pub.

Thoughts are with the crew, people in the pub and the emergency services up there tonight, hopefully no serious injuries or fatalities

BBC News now saying they cannot confirm the condition of three individuals, feared dead by the Guardian.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotlan...45#TWEET970409


Quote:Gordon Smart, editor the Scottish Sun, told the BBC:

I can't really believe what's happened. I was on the phone at the time and I heard a misfiring engine. Looked above me, couldn't work out where it was coming from, it got louder and louder and I just spotted a helicopter falling from the sky.

It was falling at great speed. It looked like the rotors weren't spinning but the helicopter was sort of turning in a strange position and dropping at great speed. Oddly enough there was no explosion no fire ball.

It's a busy Friday night, a lot of people have been out in the pubs, there are a lot of pubs in that area. I do fear… I would be staggered if there weren't fatalities from the area it's landed.

The statement of the Scottish first minister would suggest to me the air crew have probably perished! Horrific accident.

Pretty terrible scenes allright. Sky News saying six people dead and Scottish Police saying no hope of finding anymore survivors.

Does it remind anybody else when they look at those pics of the bad days in Northern Ireland? Very tragic accident, horrific trauma sustained I'd say.
It's not the HSE's opinion, it's not managements opinion, it's mine. All mine.
