A concerned citizen on Beacon Hill complained after the Boylston trolley accident this afternoon:
Is the helicopter circling for the T accident really necessary?? I don't think so... it's not medflight just the news being overly obnoxious. Not safe for it to fly over heavily populated areas. I thought there were safety regulations?
The city quickly closed the case:
The city of boston does not have jurisdiction over media helicopters in the area. i believe permission is granted through the federal aviation administration.
