A San Antonio PD helicopter made an emergency landing and the video is from the FLIR system IIRC. Amazingly, everyone escaped with only minor injuries.

The prelim NTSB report (http://ntsb.gov/ntsb/brief.asp?ev_id=20040219X00205&key=1)

I didn't see this on here yet, so sorry in advance if I missed it.

Sounds like he did a good job getting it down.

Any landing you can walk away from.;)

Notice all those parking lot lights that he missed on the way down? I'm surprised the injuries were "minor"; it sure looked like they were headed downhill at a pretty fast clip.

I guess he came in a little steep, because he had to get over the power lines.
Anyway, any auto at night you walk away from is a good one!
