What was this pilot thinking? Low flying helicopter nails tree and is destroyed!

If your family or one of your other loved ones had purchased you the opportunity to head up in the sky in a helicopter for your birthday, you would probably expect the operator of the chopper to be a professional who has done it million times.

With that in mind, you should have nothing to worry about and just when this guy probably starting to get relaxed and enjoying his birthday gift, all hell unfolded right in front of his eyes and sent him straight to the hospital. How’s that for a birthday surprise?

When the helicopter took off from the ground, you could tell that this ride was doomed from the start as the machine came dangerously close to a ton of trees before and eventually getting way out of line and clipping one of them in the most catastrophic way possible.

We watch from outside of the helicopter as it attempts to lift off and instead ends up coming straight on back down to the ground sideways and doing some major damage. That most certainly isn’t how you want a flight to end.
