Police Helicopter Monitoring Charlottesville Protest Crashes, Two Dead [updated]

One witness said that the helicopter stalled before spiraling to the ground out of control.

Witnesses told local media that the Virginia State Police helicopter crashed near a golf course.

Witness Emma Eisner, who captured video of smoke rising into the air, wrote on Twitter: “To everyone asking about the helicopter crash: it basically started stalling, spiraled down to the ground & lost control.”

A police helicopter had been seen earlier in the day circling over the counter-demonstrations in Charlottesville.

The helicopter went down at about 5.30pm local time on the west site of Charlottesville, away from the site of the violent protests.

Earlier in the day, a still unnamed man drove into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one and injuring 19.

    Look dude. You people are incapable of out of the box thinking. Replying to the ignorance is futile. Go back to sleep.
