Despite how bad it looks, no one had major injuries. The accident happened in the evening at about 3,500 metres after the helicopter lost control.

Planetmountain.com interviewed Vittorio Messini, a mountain rescue technician, and noted that you can see the hut caretaker, Toni Riepler, dive out of the way of the rotor.

Messini said, “It was absolutely incredible, just like a horror film. Those involved had THE luck of their lives and thank God we can say that in the end ‘nothing’ happened.”
