Charred fragments of metal are all that’s left of the helicopter that crashed and burned atop a Midtown Manhattan office, according to a photo released by the FDNY.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who arrived quickly at the crash scene – even before NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, said there was no indication of terrorism.

“If you’re a New Yorker you have a level of PTSD from 9/11…so as soon as you hear an aircraft hit a building, I think my mind goes where every New Yorker’s mind goes. But there’s no indication that that is the case,” Cuomo said.

Timothy McCormack, 58, the pilot who was killed when his helicopter crashed on the roof of a Midtown Manhattan skyscraper, was known as a skilled flier who fought fires in his spare time.

McCormack was a volunteer firefighter with two Dutchess County departments, according to the East Clinton Fire Department in a statement. He was also a graduate of Arlington High School, according to his Facebook profile.

McCormack was a member of the Clinton Volunteer Fire Department since 1994 and served as chief of the department for 10 years, according to a Facebook post made by the department.
