Helicopter crashes at Copacabana Beach while trying to rescue swimmer

This shocking footage was caught on the mobile phone of a man on Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beach, when a rescue helicopter plunged into the sea in front of horrified beachgoers, as it attempted to rescue a man caught in a dangerous current. Crew and swimmer were eventually rescued, thankfully. Venue of the Rio 2016 OWS, btw.
