    The Fire Rescue helicopter crashed in shallow waters of the coast of New Zealand.

    A helicopter crashed in shallow waters in Blenheim in New Zealand.

    The pilot of the helicopter, Neal Andrews, escaped the crash unharmed and said he was happy nobody was hurt.

    Andrews wasn't able to reveal the cause of the crash just yet, however, a formal investigation was started. According to him it was not a mechanical failure and it wasn't pilot’s error either.

    The pilot said he was glad to be safe and to have helped the massive firefighting effort in Marlborough earlier this week.
