Holy helicopter crash! The surveillance video from the roof of the University of New Mexico Hospital, in Albuquerue, is worth a watch.

The PHI Medical Helicopter’s tail goes spinning as its crew tries to take off from the helo-pad and then the helicopter crashes.

While the “official” cause of the crash hasn’t been figured out, the pilot told investigators the pedal froze up which caused the chopper to land on its side right by the edge of the roof!

Amazingly, all three people on board were able to make it out unharmed, but talk about a bad day on the job!
