my dad was the person who got the pilot out and shut it down according to him it was coming in to land in a field when it seemed t have lost tail rotor control and veered upwards it then went out of control it hit a row of trees cushning its fall then it impacted the ground hard the pilot sustained back injuries and the passanger walked away just shaken.it was very lucky that it landed upright the pilot done a good job there is power lines in the field too so the pilot done very well. :?:
