Brazilian rescue helicopter shook itself to pieces


Dramatic video footage shows the terrifying moment a Brazilian rescue chopper shook itself to pieces -- and scared us from ever getting into a helicopter.


Taken by the local fire department, the video shoes the vigorous vibrations initially causing the chopper to shudder around on the ground.

But seconds later it begins to fall apart and doors drop off and the nose of cockpit fell as crew members sat inside.

It's said the bizarre accident was the result of ‘ground resonance’ which caused the gear box to become unstable and cause the vibrations which pulled the craft apart.
Amazingly no-one was seriously injured in the accident.
