It looks to me as though there is another guy that falls out and is swept over by the tail. But its hard to tell.

He pulled up too much and clipped the tail rotor, the aircraft landed and then the main rotor span the thing up.

I would say that they suffered a gearbox failure on the tail rotor drive, so the torgue from the main rotors went into a spin. Not much the pilots could do at that height.

If you slow it down, look at the angle he hit (with some force) Also the rotor looks damaged??????

I reckon the bloke who jumped out ducked too.
