LONDON - Two people were killed on Wednesday when a helicopter hit a crane at a building site in central London during morning rush hour and plunged to the ground in a ball of flames.
Police said at least 13 people were injured after the aircraft smashed into a crane on the top of an unfinished luxury apartment block at Vauxhall, near the headquarters of the MI6 foreign spy agency on the south bank of the River Thames.
The top of the 51-storey building, The Tower at One St George Wharf, was shrouded in mist at the time. Police have ruled out a terror attack.
