A news cameraman was filming aerial shots of emergency response to a truck rollover east of Perth, Australia when the helicopter crashed near where rescue crews were working. A spokesman for the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said they had gotten reports that the helicopter, a Bell 206, hit the ground hard while it was filming a traffic incident at Baskerville. A spokesman for the Fire and Emergency Services Association told AAP the helicopter was on its side in a paddock. The tail section was broken off.

Both cameraman Adam Delmage and the pilot survived with relatively minor injuries. The incident has been described as an emergency landing by the pilot. The pilot acted quickly to prevent a fire by having the firemen put foam on the still running turbines. Cameraman Adam Delmage was flung from the rolling chopper. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau will investigate to find the cause of the crash
