1 dead after helicopter crash lands on Manhattan building”

Fire and police officials initially said a plane had crashed.

At least one person was killed after a helicopter made a "hard-landing" on the roof of a high-rise building in New York City on Monday, sparking a massive emergency response, officials said.

The FDNY are now battling flames atop the building where the helicopter crash-landed on a building at 51st Street and 7th Avenue, near Times Square shortly after 2 p.m. local time. The fire department believes the fire is under control.

"There may have been casualties involved", he added.

Video from the scene showed dozens of emergency vehicles with lights blaring.

A law enforcement official told Fox News that evacuations are now underway in the building.

Governor Andrew Cuomo arrived at the scene a short time ago and received a briefing from officials now addressing the situation.

"Due to FDNY activity, expect road closures and a heavy presence of emergency personnel at Seventh Avenue and W. 51st Street in Manhattan", according to Notify NYC.

The incident happened at 787 Seventh Ave.

Andrew Cuomo says no injuries have been reported and the building is being evacuated.
