While conducting sling load operations, the load at the end of the long line became tangled. The pilot attempted to land the helicopter, however when at about 10 ft above ground level, the line pulled tight. The pilot was unable to release the line, and the helicopter collided with terrain, resulting in substantial damage. The pilot received minor injuries.
