Construction worker Bo Bain was working at an excavation site near Fifth and Broad streets when the KOMO news helicopter came crashing down and burst into flames near Seattle Center. Bain said the pilot "landed on the pad there on the building, was there approximately there a minute or two, and when he went back to take off, the sound of the helicopter changed drastically. I looked and the helicopter was almost immediately pitched sideways and off balance and kind of just nosedove over the trees and clipped the top of the trees and crashed just on the other side of the street."
