KOMO 4, an ABC station, is headquartered right next to the Space Needle in a sophisticated glass and steel building that's the envy of many TV stations. Their heli-pad is on their roof, just a stone's throw from the Space Needle. I've seen their helicopter take off and land from that location.
This has happened before, most notably in Phoenix, where two news choppers collided during breaking news in 2007. I often think about colleagues who cover the days events from the sky and wonder if their job ever scares them. On days like this it must.
