Helicopter crashes into Hudson River in New York, injuring two

The helicopter’s pilot and a heliport worker suffered an injury to his hand, according to Stephen Hughes, an assistant chief with the New York City Police Department.

The pilot was the only person aboard the helicopter at the time of the crash.

“As he was making his approach he crash-landed into the water approximately 150 feet (45 meters) from the helipad. He was able to deploy his floatation device. He was able to get out of his helicopter, stand on the pad. There was a passing boat that picked him up and brought him into the heliport,” said Hughes.

Photo and video images of the scene showed the aircraft upside-down and partially submerged in the river as crews worked to secure it.
