Video: Helicopter clips ground, rotor blade kills spectator

A recently released video shows an EC-120 piloted by a 79-year old man clipping the ground during a festival in Germany in September 2012. After clipping the ground with the right skid, the helicopter starts rolling over, crashing onto its side. Shrapnel from the rotor blades was sent flying into the crowd of spectators killing a 37-year old father. Two others were seriously injured.
