    Happened in Mexico on March 12, 2017.

    The rescue helicopter was looking for a hiker, identified as Karen Violeta Ruiz Sánchez, who'd gotten separated and lost.

    One rescuer spotted her and was lowered down because the area was inaccessible for a rescue crew. She had a pulse.

    Sadly, she ended up dying. The four first responders were heading to recover her body when the tail rotor hit power lines and ripped it from the helicopter, sealing its fate.

    It spun to the ground and killed all four on board.

    Journalists and other rescue workers rushed to them immediately, but there was no saving them.

    Three of the victims' bodies were so badly burned that they had to be identified by DNA to discern who was who.

    Scary, but honourable way to go I suppose. Putting their own lives at risk helping others.

    Hmmm that tail rotor looked screwed before it hit the power line. It might just be optical illusion but it sure looked to be moving slow and choppy and the wire sealed it's fate

    That's because it is moving too fast for the camera to capture with its current frame rate. kinda like how car wheels can appear to be rotating backwards.

    Alas, helicopters are rather inelegant machines that don't want to fly. they stay up by beating air into submission, and come down just as violent.
