NBC reported, A helicopter crash-landed on the roof of a 54-story office building in Midtown Manhattan Monday, sparking a fire and killing the pilot, authorities said. 

A call about the incident at the AXA Equitable Center on Seventh Avenue and West 51st Street came in shortly before 2 p.m.

Governor Cuomo said after preliminary reports that there was no indication of foul play.

“There was a helicopter that made a forced landing, emergency landing, or landed on the roof of the building for one reason or another,” he told reporters at the scene.

A senior official told News 4 the pilot, identified by a manager at Linden Municipal Airport as Tim McCormack, had just dropped off a passenger at the East 34th Steet heliport, and may have been making his way back to the chopper’s base in Linden, New Jersey, when the crash occurred.
