In this case the cable was twisting as a result of the rotor down wash spinning the basket.  To prevent that you need a tag line or forward flight with a ballast attached, forward flight alone won't always stop it.  It helps to start forward flight prior to the spin initiating.  Anything else is pure luck, or bad luck.   Remember the one in San Berdino way back in 07 or 08?   Same thing.
