I see what the problem is - clearly, that "danger" sign was on the wrong side of the pad.

Some folks call me Vince - other folks call me...........

It looks like the guys that towed that chopper out there, did not park it on the "H" symbol. The second one simply attempted to land on his "H". which did not give him enough room.
I worked for the Trauma center in Houston. and as a Paramedic for 22 years plus 22 years in the Infantry, 2 of which were in Vietnam. I have landed many many Helicopters as a ground guide. Where were the ground guides for this guy. I would think some one would have been out there to land him. They were quick enough with the fire extinguishers.
But, then, it was raining.

David , I was kind of wondering the same thing, as it looked like they definitely used excessive space when they pulled the first one out , crowding the other landing area out.
To think that this was caused by being a mere inch to close to boot .
It would be interesting to see if anyone was held accountable. As mentioned, probably just the tax payers
