Helicopter falls into Hudson River - pilot survives

Helicopter crashes into Hudson River in New York injuring twoMore

A helicopter pilot is lucky to be alive after his aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing into New York's Hudson River. The chopper crashed at approximately 2:30 pm today, Wednesday, May 15, 2019, in a location near the Lincoln Tunnel and 30th Street.

Montoya pulled the pilot out of the water with a water rescue cradle, according to NY Waterway.

In 2009, US Airways pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger famously landed an Airbus A320 with 155 people safely on the Hudson River off Manhattan after it struck a flock of geese and lost power. There was no indication drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.

A mobile phone video of the helicopter going down, taken by a WCBS TV editor, showed it descending into the river just feet from the helipad.

FDNY said the chopper's pilot and a person on land suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Then again, he also made four birdie putts of 15 feet or longer, including the long ones at the start and end of his round. He definitely moves the needle out here and it, you know, we're all just as interested as anybody else", Stricker said.

Blade called the landing "safe", with the helicopter coming down on floats near the heliport.

At the time, the helicopter taxi was being moved to the West Side Heliport to be refueled by Zip Aviation. Investigators responded to the crash site, the agency said. It wasn't very high and it started spinning out of control.

Airbags on the helicopter are deployed just milliseconds before it hits the water. At that point I was riding this way, so it was kind of I don't know, behind some of the netting over here.

"It was the craziest thing I've ever seen", Byrd said.

An alert issued by the city's emergency management department warned of a large police and emergency response at the scene near 12th Avenue and West 34th Street in Manhattan.
