02-Jun-17 D-HFCQ Robinson R44 Rostock, Germany

Main blades struck street light on final approach to land at the Hohe Düne marina, and the instability created led to the crash.  Tail (including rotor) separated in the accident.  The complete scene is best seen in this YouTube video. Light injuries to the 4 POB – although some reports say 3 POB and one injury on the ground.

There is a marked helipad at this location – see map
