5 Dead After Helicopter Crash in New York

A helicopter crashed into New York City’s East River on Sunday night, killing five of the six people on board. Videos captured by witnesses show the helicopter descending quickly, capsizing and tilting onto its side, its rotor blades still spinning in the water. The pilot managed to free himself and call out for help from a flotation device  The five passengers on the helicopter were all “tightly harnessed,” so emergency fire and police responders had to cut the harnesses to remove them.
