At least 2 are dead because of this tragedy.

…a Seattle news helicopter plummeted from the sky Tuesday morning and crashed into two cars, exploding in a massive fireball just feet from the city’s distinctive Space Needle, the city’s fire department said.

A 37-year-old man pulled himself from his car and has burns over more than 50% of his body, Seattle Fire spokesman Kyle Moore said. The man is clinging to life in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center, Moore said…

The helicopter belonged to KOMO News. The news station declined to comment on the crash.
