Ring Doorbell Captures Helicopter Crashing into Suburban Street

Published

on

A Ring doorbell camera caught the moment a helicopter dropped from the sky and crashed into a house in Fresno, California.

Miraculously the two occupants of the helicopter survived with minor injuries and the cause of the crash, which took place on October 1, will be investigated.

Preliminary data indicated that the helicopter lost tail rotor control. If the smaller blade at the rear of the aircraft stops working the helicopter’s chassis will spin in the opposite direction of the main rotor.

The 47-year-old pilot and a 33-year-old passenger told police they heard a “pop” before losing altitude. Both were taken to a medical center for checks and are thought to have sustained minor injuries.

The Bell 206B helicopter was on a maintenance check flight and the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash further.

The Ring footage captured from a neighbor’s front porch shows the helicopter dropping from the air at speed, taking out a tree as it smashed onto its landing gear.

Neighbors were shaken by the incident, some of whom are seen coming out of their homes to survey the wreckage.

Ring Controversy

Ring doorbells, owned by Amazon, recently launched a television show entitled Ring Nation which features clips recorded on the home security devices.

The show, fronted by comedian Wanda Sykes, has come under fire from activist groups who called on Amazon and MGM to cancel the show and accused them of “normalizing and promoting Amazon’s harmful network of surveillance cameras.”

The clip show will showcase viral videos such as neighbors saving neighbors, marriage proposals, military reunions, and animals doing silly things. The creators promise it will be “a new twist on the popular clip show genre.”

Despite the controversy surrounding the show it is currently hard to view as it is currently only available on local cable channels and not on streaming services such as Amazon Prime.

Popular Science, who has watched the show, reported that so far the show “is mostly a stream of quick GoPro and smartphone videos capturing stunts, pranks, and mild-to-moderate injuries to be expected in any clip series.”

“There appear to be only two or three actual submissions courtesy of Ring camera owners, some of whom pop up in quick video chat interviews,” writes Andrew Paul.

“Nevertheless, Sykes and co-hosts repeatedly remind viewers of all the fun they can have if they just get on board. ‘You won’t believe the storytelling you can achieve with a doorbell cam!’ Sykes exclaims at one point.”
