BREAKING: ‘Ax Men’ pilot dies in Oregon helicopter crash (COCKPIT VIEW)

A pilot who starred in the History Channel show Ax Men died when his logging helicopter crashed near Oregon’s Detroit Lake on Monday afternoon. Witnesses said Bart Colantuono, of Indialantic, FL, had been transporting logs from a cutting area to a log deck in the town of Idanha. After taking a 45-minute break, Colantuono returned to pick up a load of logs at a logging site on National Forest land near Forest Service Road 1003, about two miles from Highway 22.

Witnesses said they heard a snapping sound, followed by logs hitting the ground. They then saw a rotor separate from the helicopter, followed by it turning upside down and falling to the ground. Colantuono was pronounced dead at the scene. He was the only person in the helicopter at the time.

BREAKING: Big Cruise Ship Crippled By 30 Foot Wave Near Antarctica (VIDEO)

A CRUISE ship carrying 160 people on a return trip from Antarctica lost power in one of its engines today in rough weather, the Argentine navy said. Crews were later able to fix the problem and the ship was sailing to the world’s southernmost city Ushuaia in high seas with its passengers unharmed, it added in a statement. One of the cruise ship’s engines had broken down and caused what the navy termed as “serious … handling limitations,” but causing no risks to its passengers and crew. The vessel, described on the Polar Cruises website as a refurbished, ice-strengthened, all-suite luxury cruise ship, telephoned its emergency to a search and rescue coordination center in Ushuaia, 3200km south of Buenos Aires. The engine failure occurred midday on Tuesday (local time) about 845km south of Ushuaia in the Drake Passage, where the ship faced stormy conditions including winds of 90km/h.
