Video: NY Helicopter Crash on East River

Five people were killed in a helicopter crash on New York City's East River.

Six people were on board when the crash happened, the pilot was rescued by tugboat and the other five were recovered by divers.

Mary Lee, a witness to the crash, says the chopper looked like it was quickly filling with water and she was able to see the crash happen from her apartment.

"It's cold water. It was sinking really fast. By the time we got out here, we couldn't see it. It was under water."
