That isn't a chinook, it is a sea knight. Called dynamic rollover when that happens. Notice the wheel becoming entangled in the deck nets. Several died in that accident. You're far more likely to die in a road accident then in aviation. Not any less spectacular either. Truck accidents can be quite horrific. My Dad had to visit dozens when he worked for IML freight back in the 70's and has plenty of horror stories.
