    Lifting cable could not be released by the pilot due to a cargo hook malfunction. Ground handler tried pulling the cable free from the hook and the cable was still attached to the tower was pulled into the main rotor.

    Cable handler is lucky to still have all of his fingers let alone hand as fast as that cable was ripped away from him!
