Well, that's written off.
Looks like they survived quite happily. The cabin looks sturdy considering the rest of the damage.

He said the paddock was a low-fly zone for training aircraft, and the helicopter was on its side.
The helicopter had curled rotor blades and one door hanging open.
It lay on a slight ridge, between a water tank, fence and a lone cabbage tree
I'm going to speculate that someone didn't keep their eye out for the ridge, with it also being shrouded by thick grass.

Massive sideways force, sliding it all the way to the right of the skid frame like that.
