In New York City, one person has been killed after a helicopter made a force landing onto the roof of a skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan.

World News reports.
 
The crash occurred Monday afternoon at 787 7th Avenue in Manhattan, an office building over 50 stories tall at the heart of the city.
The New York City Fire Department said a fire was caused by the crash and was quickly brought under control.
   
Emergency responders have swarmed the site and several streets in the vicinity have been blocked.
   
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the crash showed no indication of terrorism or any ongoing threat to New Yorkers at the moment, and no other passenger was in the helicopter, but he stressed that the conclusions were based on "preliminary information."
   
It is yet unclear if the crashed helicopter had permission to be flying midtown or whether the foggy and rainy weather has contributed to the crash.
