A helicopter crash-landed atop a Midtown Manhattan office building Monday afternoon, officials told The Post.
At least one person, believed to be the pilot, was killed, a senior NYPD official said.
The “hard landing” sparked a fire on the roof of 787 Seventh Avenue that has already been extinguished, the NYPD tweeted.
The incident occurred around 1:45 p.m. during rain and fog.
There is no landing pad on top of the building, officials said, and it was unclear why the pilot tried to land there.
The 54-floor skyscraper, known as the AXA Equitable Center, is home to Le Bernardin, the acclaimed French seafood restaurant.
Zach Escalante, a computer programmer who works on the third floor, said, “We felt the building move.”
“It felt like something hit or impacted the building,” he said.
