Helicopter Crashes Into New York City's East River

Helicopter Crashes Into New York City's East River”

Witness John Magers, 24, said that within minutes the helicopter disappeared beneath the waves.

He added: "It looked like it was completely submerged".

One person was able to escape the sinking helicopter while the others were trapped inside, according to sources. "It couldn't have been any longer than five minutes".

Another report said only the pilot was aboard.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman said the Eurocopter AS350 went down just after 7pm on Sunday in the waterway just north of Roosevelt Island and is "reportedly inverted in the water".

First responders were deployed to the scene where rescues were underway, The New York Times reported.

It was reportedly upside down in the river, but authorities have yet to confirm the number of people on board or their conditions. Drivers should avoid northbound travel on FDR Drive until further notice.
