Two injured in NYC helicopter crash: NYPD

Two people were injured when a charter helicopter crashed into the Hudson River in New York City on Wednesday, emergency responders said.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NYPD ASSISTANT CHIEF STEPHEN HUGHES SAYING: "As he was making his approach, he crash landed into the water approximately 150 feet from the helipad.

He was able to deploy his floatation device -- he was able to get out of the helicopter, stand on the pad." A New York Waterway Ferry crew rescued the pilot.

NYPD Assistant Chief Stephen Hughes said the 34-year-old pilot suffered an injury to his hand and a heliport worker slipped and hurt his wrist while he ran away as the helicopter came down.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NYPD ASSISTANT CHIEF STEPHEN HUGHES SAYING: "The pilot had just refueled at the West 30th Street Heliport, and as he was attempting to leave and reposition the plane to land again, he said the pilot all of a sudden felt the plane -- the helicopter come down." Witness Anthony Raisley said the scene was chaotic.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ANTHONY RAISLEY, WITNESS TO CRASH, SAYING: "We were very surprised because all of a sudden we see the helicopter starting to spin a little bit out of control... We were both very surprised because we thought maybe it was like a stunt or something or just planned or coordinated.

And then next thing you know it's out of sight and there was a splash and then sirens and everyone's coming by." No passengers were aboard the helicopter when it crashed.

The NTSB is investigating.
