    UNM Hospital remains closed after helicopter crash

    A pilot was injured but two passengers, and everyone else inside the hospital, are okay, according to a spokesperson for UNM Hospital.

    UNM hospital officials say the crash happened just before 6 pm.

    Sky News 13: Helicopter crashes on UNM Hospital

    A PHI helicopter with a pilot and two passengers had just dropped off a patient.

    Witnesses say moments after it took off from the helipad, it started to spin and teeter near the side of the building.

    “I saw the helicopter just kind of take off and then it just started spinning sideways and almost hit the side of the building,” said witness Stephanie Litten. “Then it kind of went up and crash landed almost on its side really hard.”

    Witnesses say they saw fire and debris fly up as soon as it crashed, followed by lots of black smoke and steam from the sprinkler systems.

    The pilot has some injuries, UNM Hospital says the pilot is in good and stable condition Wednesday. The two passengers didn’t have any injuries.

    UNM Hospital says they did have to move some labor and delivery patients from the 5th and 6th floors because of structural concerns.

    Wednesday night, the hospital’s helipad was still out of commission and will likely stay that way until the FAA completes and on-site investigation.

    That means all other emergency landings will be sent to the Sunport or nearby Johnson Field which is about three minutes from the Hospital and the hospital says they’ll be ready for those patients.

    All adult patients and pediatric trauma patients are now being accepted at the hospital. Other categories of pediatric patients are still being diverted to other hospitals.

    UNM Hospital is requesting that there are no visitors Wednesday night. Patients with scheduled appointments and surgeries are advised to call their clinic Thursday morning.

    Parts of Lomas near the hospital are still closed.

    Et dire qu'il y a encore des hôpitaux qui ne mettent pas d'équipe de sécurité pour l'accueil de l'hélico en France.

    Et quand il y a quelqu'un, il n'a pas, dans la très grande majorité des cas, le matériel adéquate. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

    Et surtout, aucune formation incendie spécifique hélistation ! Alors que ce type de formation existe... Il suffit de se renseigner au CNPP de Vernon... http://www.cnpp.com/fr

    Pilot in University of New Mexico hospital crash reported jammed pedals
    2014-04-17 09:58:59
    by Elan Head

    The pilot of a PHI, Inc. helicopter that crashed on the roof of the University of New Mexico hospital on April 9 reported that the pedals on his Airbus Helicopters AS350 B3 were jammed or locked in the neutral position prior to the accident.

    According to a preliminary report issued by the United States National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the aircraft was departing from the hospital rooftop helipad in Albuquerque, N.M., for a repositioning flight when it began to yaw in a counterclockwise direction as it lifted off the helipad. The helicopter completed several rotations before it impacted the rooftop, and came to rest adjacent the helipad.

    The commercial pilot and two paramedics on board the aircraft received only minor injuries, but the helicopter was substantially damaged. Although a small post-crash fire started, it was extinguished shortly after the helipad’s fire suppression system activated.

    According to the NTSB report, “The pilot reported that he had completed all pre-takeoff hydraulic checks and that after liftoff, he commanded a slight left turn. However, the helicopter kept turning and entered a spin. The pilot added that the pedals were jammed or locked, in the neutral position.”

    In its preliminary investigation of the accident, the NTSB confirmed continuity of the helicopter’s drive unit throughout the tail rotor system, and all major structural components of the helicopter were accounted for on scene. The wreckage was recovered from the hospital’s rooftop and transported to a secure location for further examination.
