Video of the incident, which occurred in Abbeyshrule, about 110km west of Dublin, on Thursday night was captured by a nearby security camera. It shows the chopper hovering over a canal next to the Rustic Inn, apparently trying to land between two poles on the bank; the pilot abandons his first attempt to touch down and flies off to make another pass. The movement of the trees lining the canal would might suggest there was a strong wind blowing, and the chopper bobs like a buoy on a rough sea as it returns for a second attempt. This time the pilot manages to slot between the poles, but just as the skids are about to kiss the grass, the tail flicks out violently and slams into the side of the Rustic Inn, sending debris flying. A man in his 60's has been arrested following the incident.
