Helicopter Crashes into New York City’s East River

NEW YORK (AP) — A helicopter with five people aboard crashed into the East River on Tuesday afternoon after taking off from a launch pad on the riverbank, killing one passenger and injuring three others. Two of the passengers were believed to be British living in Portugal, and the other two lived in Australia, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. New York Police Department divers pulled the victim, a woman, from about 50 feet (15 meters) of water about an hour after the Bell 206 helicopter went down around 3 p.m. EDT (2000 GMT). She was pronounced dead at the scene.
