Video of helicopter spin and crash in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

A news helicopter was trying to track a bank robbery unfolding, when it began to crash with smoke pouring out of the tail. The helicopter spun out of control and hit the ground in Sao Paolo, Brazil. The pilot apparently heroically avoided high rise buildings and busy roadways. Another network’s television news helicopter, also assigned to track the robbery, caught the crash on video.

The pilot was killed and the camera operator was seriously injured in the crash.
