We have an update on the helicopter accident in midtown.

Https://t.co/BDgsNr7MzD — Mayor Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) June 10, 2019 The building houses a number of financial firms including Stifel, BNP Paribas, New Mountain Capital, UBS and Citigroup.

The pilot was confirmed dead and NY officials ruled out the possibility of terrorism.

The scene in midtown was chaotic as NYPD, FDNY blocked streets for the investigation and gawkers elbowed their way for the best vantage point.

TheStreet's Katherine Ross caught up with a UBS employee as he shared the harrowing moments with the helicopter crash-landed.

"We felt a jolt around 1:15 P.M.

Or thereabouts.

I thought it was [just a truck on the road] passing and shaking building, but my team members were like, 'no, this is something more serious," J.

Waugh, a witness.

Mr. Waugh told TheStreet that he was located in the annex to the building, which is connected by a bridge to the main building.

He and his team were located on he sixth floor at the time of the crash.

Mr. Waugh recounted speaking to another witness, who was located around the 30th floor, who told him that she had felt a shake when e crash happened.

Mr. Waugh said that he and his team were evacuated shortly before 2 P.M.

787 7th ave, #midtown NYC.

We're 1 block south.

20 mins ago there was a loud sound like a too-low #helicopter & I looked up and saw sheet of flame on roof and then smoke.

News reports saying helicopter/small plane crash onto roof which would be consistent with what I heard/saw.
