A helicopter has crashed on the waterfront of Auckland, New Zealand's biggest city, while installing a Christmas tree.

The aircraft gave a sudden jolt and tipped over, its main rotor blades striking the ground and tangling in a tower and the tail breaking off as the pilot was tossed around the cabin and workers ran for cover.

The pilot, named as Greg Gribble, had a miracle escape, walking away without major injury along with everyone else at the scene.
