Pilot Greg Gribble was held safely by his seatbelt. He was shook violently, then knocked out until 13 seconds after the initial contact (00:13~0:26) when he is seen starting to move again:

The engine is fine... It only needs a new chassis, fuselage, rotors, a few parts, and a body job.

From the moment a helicopter leaves the assembly line, it spends the rest of its life trying to self-destruct
