"We tried to pry them out but we didn't want to touch them", the neighbor told the station. Upon arriving at the scene she said she "saw one man out, I'm not sure if he fell out, and there was body parts".

Another neighbour, Marian Michaels, said she saw no fire and believed that the helicopter had attempted a landing and clipped a roof in the neighbourhood. It was unclear if all three people who died were aboard the helicopter.

Emergency services raced to the scene in Newport Beach just before 2pm local time after the four-seater chopper went down on Tuesday afternoon. The helicopter is owned by Revolution Aviation, which says on its website it has been operating since the 1960s, offering pilot training and sightseeing trips. John Wayne Airport identified the helicopter model as a Robinson 44. It also boasts a 100-per cent safety record.
