New York City helicopter crash victims (2018)

The New York City helicopter crash that killed everyone on board except the pilot yesterday may have been caused by a passenger's piece of luggage, the pilot told investigators. "He had an excellent voice", said Adrian Adams, a 60-year-old Upper East Side resident who attends the church.

"One of the most hard parts of the rescue were that five people were tightly harnessed", Fire Department of New York Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. Eyewitness News reached out to the parent company for FlyNyon, Nyon Air, regarding concerns about the safety of the harnesses used in the flight and the amount of training passengers receive before a flight.

As the aircraft foundered, the pilot was heard on an emergency radio transmission calling: "Mayday, mayday, mayday". Anthony Vance told reporters.

The helicopter specialized in doors-off photo tours where passengers are harnessed and they can lean out and take photos of the Manhattan skyline. The harnesses are created to be more secure than a traditional aircraft seatbelt, but in the case of this emergency, may have contributed to all five passengers deaths.

The pilot of the Liberty Helicopters" flight has been taken to hospital "for observation'. "He was just a very good man". In June 2005, two helicopters crashed into the East River in the same week, injuring a total of 15 people.

Afterward, Nazarian said members of the Coast Guard arrived in an attempt to help the helicopter passengers. "You should have a harness with all of these devices that requires only a fist bump to detach", Tristani said.

Other questions have been raised about the helicopter itself, which should have been equipped with floats when operating around water.

Fire and police teams worked in below-40-degree temperatures and 50-foot-deep water with 4-mph currents to remove the passengers from the helicopter, said Nigro, the fire commissioner. Two other passengers died weeks later as a result of their injuries.

"It's cold water. It was sinking really fast", Mary Lee, 66, told the New York Post. "There was a lot of screams".

The helicopter went down near Gracie Mansion, the mayoral residence.

According to FDNY officials, the helicopter landed and then flipped over in the water. "They were the first boat on the scene".
