too close for comfort

My Mom and Dad are visiting my sister and her family in Cranbrook. Today a helicopter crashed on a residential street there, killing all three people on board and a pedestrian on the street. Here's the story.

The crash was just a few blocks from my sister's house. What a horrible thing. I phoned to make sure everyone was okay. Barb, Kim and the kids were at school when the crash occurred, but Dad goes out walking while he's there. Barb reassured me that helicopter did not fall on my father today. I was relieved, but also sad to know that four people died.

question: how did it happen, I wonder?
