“Our TEN News Perth helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing earlier today after encountering some issues mid-flight,” a network spokesperson said.
“Luckily both the pilot and camera operator were unharmed,” the spokesperson said.
”The camera operator was taken to hospital for a check-up as a precautionary measure, however has since been given the all clear and released.”
A Nine reporter who witnessed the crash told 6PR that as the helicopter rolled onto its side the cameraman tore off his harness and got clear of the chopper.
A Seven News crew, which was also on site covering the same story about a truck rollover, even managed to capture the moment on film.
