Police in New York City say all five passengers aboard a helicopter that crashed into the East River are dead. Officials say the pilot escaped without serious injuries. A US Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman says the aircraft went down just after 7:00pm Sunday. Multiple videos posted on Twitter shows the red helicopter landing hard in the water and then flipping on its side.
