I really don't think he knew what he was doing. He caused the crash by pulling the steel cable into the rotors.

I would imagine the pilot would have known exactly where the cables were before attempting such close ground work.If someone flicks a cable,the whole map changes The accident report will find out what really happened no doubt.Team- unbiased opinion.K.I.S.S principle upheld here

What's crazy is it happened in a blink of an eye. One moment your watching a helicopter in amazement. Next your running for your lives with terror.

I believe there was a release mechanism under the helicopter that was supposed to have disconnected the cable already. The guy was trying to get it to release. There was no where near enough slack for the heli to have landed while it was still connected.
