The trainer landed the helicopter on top of Maitri Apartment in Bangalore.

According to reports, the pilot and the co-pilot are safe following the emergency landing of the helicopter.

"The helicopter belongs to the rotary wing of HAL. There were many apartments and high tension wires around so the pilot made the decision to land on top of the apartment to reduce damage. The rotary wing has been damaged. DGCA officials will come and asses the situation, we think this will be lifted tomorrow." said TG Krishna Bhatta, DCP, Bangalore East.
