News helicopter crashes by Seattle's Space Needle, killing 2

A news helicopter crashed in downtown Seattle Tuesday morning, killing 2 people and injuring one, officials said.

The chopper, used by KOMO, an ABC affiliate, and KING5, an NBC affiliate, went down near Seattle's Space Needle. Photos showed a fire and large plumes of smoke where it crashed.

Two people died on the scene, where three cars were burning, the Seattle Fire Department said. Paramedics took a 37-year-old man, who had been in one of the cars, to the hospital in critical condition.

It was not immediately clear whether there were other casualties.
