A helicopter crashed onto the fog-shrouded roof of a midtown Manhattan skyscraper on Monday, killing at least one person.

Axar.az reports citing TRT World.

The crash occurred shortly before 1800 GMT on a rainy, grey day atop the 229m AXA Equitable Center at 787 Seventh Avenue, a few blocks north of Times Square.

Dozens of emergency vehicles swarmed the area, shutting down traffic and evacuating offices in one of the city's busiest areas.

The person killed is "presumed" to be the pilot, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference. No injuries, either to people in the building or on the ground, have been reported.

" The helicopter is pretty obliterated at this point. It was obviously a very hard hit," de Blasio said during the briefing.
