Dramatic Helicopter Crash Caught on Camera | Onboard Footage

  • Published: 20 March 2019
  • This dramatic helicopter crash caught on camera shows onboard footage of a helicopter crash landing.

    The footage, which was filmed by one of those on board on July 9th 2018, shows the helicopter attempting to land at South Inylchek Glacier base camp in the Khan Tengri mountains when the pilot suddenly appears to lose control.

    The helicopter rises into the air again and appears to bank sharply before slamming into the ground and rolling over many times.

    Eventually, the helicopter comes to a stop and the filmer, who gave his name only as David, is able to escape the wreckage through a hole in the cabin.

    Incredibly, all those on board survived the crash, although many were injured, including four who were immediately flown to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

    One Polish woman was left paralysed from the waist down.

    According to the filmer, the tourists included two Germans, four Poles and four Japanese.

    "The panic set in when I felt the stinging of kerosene around my feet as my shoes were being drenched in it," David told Newsflare.

    "The fear of being burnt alive at any second made me struggle even harder," he added.

    According to the filmer, the cause of the crash hasn't been determined.

          Cheap flights why so cheap? We seat you in the chopper with no seatbelts. This is the dumbest flight service ever 😂🤣

                  Amazing how everyone was so calm, following this accident...That guy was like: “Can you please move, you’re crushing me”...I’d a been like: “Get the “Fuuuk off me and move your A$$ out, right now, Mudder-Fatha!!”

                    Travis Ryno  I remember being run down by a bycycle (huge one), when I was about 7 or 8. The cycler flew a few feet and I was dragged-lying down flat under his bike. When I realised I was okay, the first thing I did was I got up and straightly went home (was a few blocks away). Didnt even bother turning back. I dont recall looking around either.

                    @Travis Ryno  Out of shock and the adrenaline of having just survived, plus instantaneous physical pain for some, if we must count - we dont know if all of them had the same _reflex_ when they realised they survived

                    @macy Gee ...They hadn't survived it yet.
                    Usually if you survive the impact it's the fire that kills you, and they clearly weren't all ignorant of that fact..
                    ...then there's not knowing if the wreck might start sliding down the mountain, as is most likely to happen in that terrain...

                    It was impressive. Very measured behavior.

                    Well, when you realised you just survived a horrible crash, the first reaction youd feel would never be condescending. I doubt they ever felt pain the moment they got to their feet

                    Maybe don't fly to a glacier? Why do you have to fly up there?

                    Glad to know all on board survived although some injured very badly. I can only imagine the terror of being on board and helpless to stop it from happening.

                      I might be wrong, but isnt it the sound of the tail snapping after hitting something/having a major malfunction at 1:22 ?

                        @model guy295 Possible, but from the guy ' s view he didnt seem to land that fast. ..

                        It would be way louder along with the speed of the tail rotor it would have swung back and hit the helicopter, most likely he notice he was going down to land to fast and gave it to much and he lost control
