Ziplines are cool but nearly invisible to helicopters. I wonder if they knew exactly what they were responding to. RIP

The cause of the accident wasn't mentioned. I've no clue why they even mentioned the zipline other than to draw further readers.

Rotor system ate the zipline. In that environment, no way they saw it. Sad.

Do you mean a wire strike caused the crash? The only reference I've seen about that is one that says "allegedly".

This article was poorly written and ommited important information. Another article says the rotor hit the zip line.
