Amazing scenes in Auckland, New Zealand where a helicopter plummeted to the ground after it became tangled in wires.

Footage captured by local television shows the pilot descending when the chopper's blades appeared to catch. The tail of helicopter snaps and the pilot is tossed about as the helicopter smashes into the ground sending.

The pilot, brilliantly called Greg Gribble, walked away from the accident and is said to be 'doing fine'.

Mr Gribble's son Jaz told the Telegraph: "It's pretty nerve racking actually. To see my father have it come crashing down around him, yes it was pretty nerve-racking."
