Looks to me like he doesn't have to worry about explaining anything to anybody anymore.

Oh dude....that's horrific. Being in the construction industry, helicopter lifts are always the last option but that tricky location looked like it was really the ONLY option at that point in the project...

I've got to say that I've never seen that design of helicopter make that type of lift. It looked like a troop transport or something. Usually, they're really skinny and are made of a minimal amount of body work in order to reduce weight as much as possible.

What's sad is that the artist who was comissioned to build that spire-thing is probably more distraught that his work of art is damaged than that someone was actually hurt or killed.....

That was a CH-47 Chinook, also known as the Sh+thook. I've seen them carry howitzers
and a full combat load in slings with the crew and engineers inside. they can carry just about double their weight.

Any jobsite I've ever been on that used a helicopter to lift a piece of equipment, when it comes time to set the unit it is lowered by a winch on board the copter while the copter remains stationary. The copter will only move laterally if necessary, never up and down, that motion is handled strictly by the winch. Using the copter itself to lower the unit is just too dangerous, as, well, witnessed in the video.

Exactly... and I'm sure you can afford to be a little less precise when dropping that kind of payload 50 feet above ground instead of being 700 feet in the air with high winds blowing all around trying to place a piece of art on a surface area that is just a tad bit larger than the footprint of the artwork iteself....

I'm not so sure I blame the pilot at all on this one. There just seems to be not nearly enough due dilligence spent in preparation for this type of operation, and it's a damn shame as someone probably lost their life b/c of it...
