Video Captures Harrowing Honopu Beach Helicopter Crash

Four individuals miraculously survived a helicopter crash on Honopu Beach in Hawaii this week. The crash, which was captured by a phone camera on board the helicopter, shows the pilot making a desperate crash landing in the sands of Honopu. The crash occurred on February 27th.

Within the video, you can see the helicopter begin to stop working mid-flight, sending the machine hurtling towards the sand at a tremendous pace. The vehicle falls from the sky until just before hitting the beach.

The pilot then attempts to autorotate the blade, a recovery maneuver where rotor blades are driven by the upward flow of air through the rotor. Luckily, the maneuver was enough to break the landing, and prevent anybody on board from dying.

One of the passengers was injured, suffering a fractured vertebrae in their back. No other injuries were reported. See a clip of this harrowing helicopter crash in Honopu Beach in the clip below,
