     An eyewitness says he saw first-hand the helicopter crash in Manchester Thursday night.

     Adam Smith lives about 1000 feet from the school the chopper crashed at, and says he heard the helicopter start sputtering and stalling right over his home.
       
     He says a few minutes later he saw the chopper completely shutdown and free-fall more than a hundred feet in the air.

     Smith and other witnesses who heard the crash say it sounded like a bomb went off, and then say they saw the orange glow in the night from the flames.
