BREAKING: Small Aircraft Strikes New York Skyscraper

AN AIRCRAFT – believed to be a helicopter, but as of yet unconfirmed – has crashed into a building in Midtown Manhattan, NYPD officials have confirmed.

Emergency crews responded to the incident at 787 Seventh Ave today after witnesses reported hearing a loud bomb.

The roof of the building was still smoldering an hour ago.

Smoke was seen billowing from the top of the 54-story building as police ordered the evacuation of several surrounding buildings.

As of yet, other than the pilot, there is no word on any other injuries. 

Witnesses reported hearing a loud boom before flames erupted from the roof of the building, which houses the AXA Equitable Center.  

Emergency services get to work whilst New York Police close-off the scene.

It is not clear what kind of aircraft was involved, but initial reports suggest it was a helicopter.

Emergency response teams still remain on the scene and the area has been evacuated.

Politicalite will update as the story develops.
