A helicopter crashed into the top of a skyscraper in New York City on Tuesday afternoon, evoking still raw emotions in a city that was still on edge following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks nearly two decades ago. The midtown Manhattan building is located at 787 Seventh Avenue and the crash took place around 2 p.m. EDT.

CNN reported on live TV that at least one person has died, but there was no immediate indication that it could be terror-related.

It was unclear how many people were in the helicopter. About 100 fire and emergency response units were on the scene between 51st and 52nd Streets.

“The helicopter made a hard landing onto the roof of the building, said a fire official,” ABC News reported.

It was unclear if the weather was a factor, but it’s been steadily raining in the city since late morning.

This is a developing story that will be updated as more information becomes available.
