Crash Switzerland Petersgrat

Pilot killed during a landing on the mountain landing spot Petersgrat, 5 passengers survived with minor injuries. The report says it turned over during landing, which sounds like a rollover or maybe a jackstall.

A first official report is now available. Reg: HB-ZTM, AS350 B2. Interestingly,it says it turned over to the left during landing. Only the pilot got killed, the passengers got away relatively unscathed. How does the pilot sitting on the right side end up getting killed and the rest walks away ?
