A video has emerged of the terrifying moments inside a tourist helicopter that crashed shortly after taking off in Colombia.
The helicopter lost control and plummeted from the air, crashing into the side of a high-rise building in Medellín on Monday.
All six people aboard the helicopter miraculously survived.
Now, new footage has emerged showing chaos inside the cabin as the helicopter spins in the air and eventually falls.
American tourist Francisco Salas, 36, is heard calling emergency services using a combination of Spanish and English.
Petrified passengers aboard helicopter that crashed into roof thought they were going to die
New images have emerged showing the inside of the cabin as the helicopter descended.
He also describes the scene to the camera, saying: ‘I’ve been in a helicopter crash.
“We are very high up and waiting for the police and the rescue team.”
After the accident, Francisco said: ‘I had a woman next to me with a lot of body weight who didn’t have the strength to support herself so I put my arm around her.
‘I used one arm to hold myself against the helicopter while I used the other to hold the woman up for about 45 minutes.
The helicopter ended up hanging off the side of the roof of a building, high above the ground.
Hanging high in the air, somehow everyone on board managed to get out and survive.
He went on to talk about how he thought he was going to die.
He said: ‘I had my phone with me, I had a video call with my mum and dad.
‘I even said goodbye to my brother, it was a very serious moment.
“I just wanted to say goodbye and thank everyone.”
The Texas businessman was one of six people who were aboard the tourist helicopter at the time of the accident.
Next to him were two women from Costa Rica named Sandy Villalobos Marín, 34, and Karen Rivera Picada, 36, and Colombians Luisa Fernanda Osorio and Jaime Andrés Echeverri.
Echeverri, the co-pilot, broke his leg.
The pilot was Brian Michel Álvarez, 32 years old.
More than 70 emergency workers helped.
Images of the exterior, taken with a mobile phone, were published yesterday, showing it taking off and then, almost immediately, beginning to fall through the air.
The helicopter lost control moments after taking off and quickly began to fall before crashing.
Luisa Osorio, Salas’ wife, told the Colombian newspaper Noticias Caracol that they joined the flight to record content for social networks to promote her singing career and her YouTube channel and they thought they were not going to make it out alive.
Osorio said: ‘We get along well. Literally when he was rising he couldn’t do it completely.
“It started spinning, spinning really fast, and we said, ‘We’re going to die here.’
Osorio recalled that the rescuers ordered them “not to move, absolutely nothing, not even breathe” while they worked to get them out.
