At any normal tour altitude you would never be in the avoid side of the HV diagram. If it was just an engine out, there would have been plenty of time to autorotate to an acceptable spot for a zero speed landing.

Worst thing would be then rolling to its side. Which of course could theoretically start the fire we have seen.

I canít see why it would be similar to autorotating into tall timber.
