Dramatic footage has emerged from Brazil where a rescue helicopter literally fell to pieces on landing at an airstrip in the north of the country.

The images show the rotor blades still turning as the helicopter falls apart underneath.

The four-man crew suffered only minor injuries. The official explanation for the disintegration was that the ground at the landing strip was too uneven.
