Is batsman out if an edge hits his helmet?

A batsman edges the ball; it hits his helmet and lobs up. A catch is taken. Is the batsman out? ...asks Kris Baker.

YES. The batsman is out, as the helmet is considered to be a part of his body. However, an instance where it wouldn't have been out is if it hit the fielding side helmet.
