Scotland Helicopter Crash

Scotland Helicopter Crash, At least one person was killed and 32 injured when a police helicopter crashed into the roof of a packed Glasgow pub, trapping many inside in choking dust and debris.

The death toll is expected to rise, Scottish police said.

Witnesses said the helicopter dropped from the sky like a stone onto the busy Clutha Pub in Scotland’s biggest city at 10:25 p.m. on Friday night as over 100 people listened to a live music concert.

More than 10 hours later, emergency workers were still searching through the rubble for survivors in the shadow of the mangled blue helicopter, which was embedded in the pub’s roof.

“Sadly at this time I can confirm one fatality. We expect that number to increase over the coming hours,” Chief Constable of Police Scotland Stephen House told reporters, adding 32 people had been taken to hospital.

There were three people aboard the helicopter, two police officers and a civilian pilot, when it crashed.

As dawn broke, expert rescue teams and firefighters were laboring to make the pub safe and free anyone still under the rubble. Earlier, rescuers said they had spoken to people trapped under debris.
