It happened at around 1:43 p.m., according to FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro.

More than 100 emergency responders rushed to the scene at 787 Seventh Ave. between 51st and 52nd Streets. The building is 54 stories tall.

The pilot, identified as Tim McCormack, was killed. The East Clinton, New York, Volunteer Fire Department said he served as chief there for 10 years. Before joining the East Clinton VFD, he was a member of the LaGrange Fire Department. With 15 years of experience flying helicopters and single-engine airplanes, he was certified as a flight instructor last year, according to Federal Aviation Administration records.

McCormack radioed before the crash that he was in trouble, sources told CBS2. Paul Dudley, the airport manager in Linden, N.J., where the helicopter flew out of, said, “McCormack is an experienced pilot and very well respected in the aircraft community,” adding he worked for an executive and was flying his helicopter at the time of the crash.
