Man dies after being decapitated by a helicopter blade

Salvatore DiSi, 62, died instantly Thursday afternoon while performing maintenance on Dr Alfred Bonati's chopper at Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport in Florida.

Local TV stations showed one of the helicopter's main rotors badly splintered after the impact.

The sheriff's office identified the victim as 62-year-old Salvatore Disi.

The Hernando County Sheriff said at a press conference that the death appears to be an accident and they have no reason to expect foul play.

The aircraft is believed to be a 1993 Bell 230 twin-engine light helicopter, according to the Tampa Bay Times, which cited Federal Aviation Administration records.

He said Disi "had an interaction" with the aircraft and "died nearly immediately, if not immediately".

Denise M. Moloney, a spokesperson for Hernando County Sheriff, told TribLive that fire and rescue were initially called to attend the incident "but we canceled them because it was a very obvious death".

The sheriff would not say what kind of aircraft was involved, other than that it was a civilian craft.

Mr Neinhuis said that the incident occurred near the hangers, rather than on a runway. He was killed instantly, investigators said.
