A HELICOPTER ambulance transporting a heart for urgent transplant surgery shockingly crashed into a hospital helipad, before a medic recovered the vital organ and dropped it again.
The pilot was treated for minor injuries and two others on board escaped unharmed after the helicopter crashed into the helipad on top of the Keck Hospital of USC, in Los Angeles.
The chopper crash-landed shortly after 3pm on Friday, November 6, but it is not yet known how the accident occurred.
Video footage uploaded via Metro News shows the helicopter rolled on its side, surrounded by what appears to be a red liquid, with its tail hanging over the edge of the helipad.
A crew member spectacularly recovers the heart from the aircraft, before handing it to a medical professional to take it to surgery.
Medical personnel instantly hurry over and recover the heart from the floor.
Hospital officials confirmed the heart arrived safely and the patient was undergoing the transplant. They added that nobody inside or around the hospital was injured.
