A tragedy in New York City was caught on video – a private charter helicopter crashed into the East River Sunday night.
In a twitter video shot by a bystander the helicopter can be seen landing in the water with its rotors still turning, it later flipped upside down and all five passengers were confirmed dead early Monday.
The pilot was able to escape into the frigid water and was rescued by a tugboat.
The helicopter was owned by Liberty Helicopter Tours.
