A helicopter ride ended in disaster on Monday morning after an out-of-control emergency aircraft crashed into a Florida apartment building.

“At approximately 8:46 a.m., emergency personnel responded to a call of an aircraft alert located southwest of the Pompano Beach Airpark,” the Broward County Sheriff’s office explained in a statement, noting that the helicopter in question was a “BSO Fire Rescue helicopter.”

Though it remains unclear what exactly prompted the crash, which occurred when the aircraft was on its way to respond to an emergency call, the rear of the helicopter was reportedly seen smoking before it began spiraling toward the ground.

The incident left two people injured and two people dead. Of the two dead, one person was on the ground while the other, Broward Sheriff's Office Capt. Terryson Jackson, was aboard the plane.

Fly safe, friends.
