Rick Macomber shows us the scene on Truman Parkway at Dana Avenue in Hyde Park around 4:50 a.m., after a dump truck unloading asphalt for the Truman repaving project took down power, phone and cable lines.
To add insult to injury, residents report that at least one news copter then kept circling and circling and circling, beaming out endless video of video of a dump truck that was not going anywhere.
In a plaintive plea to NBC Boston, Channel 25, Channel 5 and Channel 7 (at that hour, who could tell whose chopper that was?), Liz begs:
Helicopter flying low over Hyde Park for over an hour now. Get your shot and please go. Enough.
