New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, has confirmed that at least one person is dead after a helicopter crash landed into a building in Midtown Manhattan.

It was further gathered that the incidence which happened today, Monday June 10, was handled by the emergency crews.

They responded to the incident at 787 Seventh Ave just before 1pm on Monday as smoke was seen from the top of the 54-story building forcing police to order the evacuation of several structures in the area as a precaution.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has said there is no indication that the crash was intentional. ‘If you are a New Yorker you have a level of PTSD from 9/11. As soon as you hear an aircraft hit a a building, my mind goes where the mind of every New Yorker goes’ he said.

There does not appear to have been any significant damage to the building’s structure. The building houses the AXA Equitable Center. Other tenants include BNP Paribas, Stifel, New Mountain Capital, Sidley Austin LLP, Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, UBS, and Citigroup.

No details about the person killed have been released, and no additional injuries have been reported at this time.
