Some people just want to see the world burn.
 
2014-03-18 11:28:21 AM  
I didn't fuel could burn for a block

Yeesh. That's got to be hard, for those coworkers having to report on that one.

/I can't see thru metal, Kent!

wiseolddude: KOMO news station is located close to the space needle.


Yeah, that's who I turned to first only to find out it was their news chopper that went down.

Better get a news chopper on the scene to report. Oh, there's already one there, and... oh. Never mind.

That pilot must've been high on the marijuana!

Simpsons reference.

KOMO news said it was landing on the roof and teetered off the side of it and landed in the street.

I've got two former coworkers in the news industry who now work in Seattle, so I'm getting a kick...

/Both are okay, as far as I know
//One of them is on a visit back to Texas
///Thoughts to the family of those killed and injured

Saw the smoke from my office.  Terrible news.  Glad I went to work a half hour early today or I could have been stopped at that same light at the same time.

If only there were some way we could see the accident from a higher vantage point...

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: The Space Needle? What is it?


It's a bit pointy tower in Seattle, but that's not important right now.

/KOMO was the ABC affiliate I watched in BC
//goddamn
 
2014-03-18 11:40:45 AM  
It's a jointly operated helicopter between KOMO 4 & KING 5, and was the replacement chopper as the main heli was out of operation (likely for maintenance).

/used to work at KOMO
//has lots of friends at both stations.

Two vehicles were struck in the crash. Witnesses said a man could be seen running from from one car with his sleeve on fire, and he was extinguished by officers at the scene.

Lucky he didn't get shot. Never run at police officers with a firearm.

For those unfamiliar with Seattle, KOMO-TV is located right next to the Space Needle and has a helicopter landing pad on the roof.

It looks like the chopper crashed just a few dozen feet from the building and the landing pad.

So how long before KOMO is advertising they were first on the scene?

They could have gotten Ken Schram to complain about it if they hadn't canned him.

That's the helipad they used on Grey's Anatomy to make it look like the hospital was next to the Space Needle.

Or, since Sinclair now owns KOMO, they're going to turn it into a political conspiracy.

Well, the press were on the scene before the police.
