the engine broke free ... I assume that is what caused the tail section to sheer
I found it interesting that the pilot wanted to get back to flying helicopters as soon as possible. I can understand why he would, but I couldn't understand why he thought anyone would let him fly one ever again.
Perhaps he could find a future job as a test-pilot.
So he will have to do some recertification tests, and a full medical. Then up in the air again. That is why there is so much training, to reduce accidents. The only way not to have accidents is not to fly at all. This was just one of those where the only damage was to repairables.
