Rescue helicopter falls apart on landing
The crew escapes with minor injuries when a rescue helicopter disintegrates upon landing in Para, northern Brazil. The helicopter shakes as it lands before the front falls off and the tail breaks in two. It may have experienced ground resonance, similar to what happens in a washing machine when clothes are concentrated at one point during a spin cycle
