Pilot and passenger survive dramatic helicopter crash caught by doorbell camera

A pilot and his passenger miraculously survived a helicopter crash caught on doorbell camera in California over the weekend.

The apparent accident happened Saturday morning when the pilot and a passenger said they heard a “pop” noise as they flew over Fresno just before 10 a.m., ABC30 reported.

The plane, a Bell 206B civilian helicopter, fell from the sky and crashed between two houses near Willow Avenue and Jensen Avenue in the city, about 120 miles southeast of San Jose.

A doorbell camera at a nearby home recorded the dramatic crash and has since gone viral on Twitter, where hundreds of thousands of people viewed the clip.

It shows a helicopter falling from the sky and crashing into a house before hitting a palm tree.

Other footage of the scene showed someone helping the pilot and passenger escape from the wreckage of the helicopter, KMPH reported Saturday.

Police told the news channel that both the passenger and pilot were found conscious and breathing and suffered no major injuries as a result.

Both were taken to the hospital and would reportedly survive.

According to ABC30, an investigation is now underway, with the Federal Aviation Authority and the National Transportation Safety Board joining an investigation into the crash.

After the incident, the road was closed for at least 24 hours.
