The FDNY is responding to a helicopter crash into the roof of a 54-story office building in midtown Manhattan, law enforcement officials tell News 4.
A report of the crash at the AXA Equitable Center on Seventh Avenue and West 49th Street came in shortly before 2 p.m. No other details were immediately available.
The city issued an emergency notification saying to expect road closures and the presence of emergency personnel at Seventh Avenue and West 51st Street. The NYPD also tweeted the area should be avoided.
