The city of New York should sue the pilot for negligence and take his license away for 1

What? He had engine failure. It wasn't like he was doing a barrel roll and it went wrong. The facts will come out but what they're going to look at is the company that maintains the Helicopter and its service history. They'll also take the heli apart to see what actually went wrong. If it was true engine failure, the fact he landed it in water saved his life.

Pilot new how to get out, has he left the others to die ?

Helicopters are inherently dangerous. So many life limited parts. Oh and let's not forget they shake and vibrate constantly, not exactly good for turbines.

i know that captins for ships and planes must not leave during an emergcy until all everyone else has left (even if everyone is ok or there is only a handful of surviors) i am feeling a little scared for the helocopter poilt if he was suppose to follow the same rules.

My dad's copter lost rpm on take off and landed in 3 ft of water in lake Tahoe. Took pontoons off just day before and was taking copter to storage for winter season. He and 2 passengers were ok. Never flew again as a pilot. Sad as He was a great pilot.

liberty helicopters got the liberty to crash where they want

This is a very silly question but I am going to ask anyways - after the hard landing, would the passengers be so disoriented not to be able to unbuckle and get out of the helicopter?

The helicopter probably sank quickly and that results in the doors no longer opening due to water pressure. Really, when you land on water, it's best to land with the doors open.

As soon as i felt that going down. i would of unbuckled my belts and went for the door before it went under. cause as soon as it go under water the pressure will happen and no amount of strenth would get them doors open. so sad 💔

You couldn't pay me enough to get in a helicopter.

So much for advanced technology

Didn't they knew how to get out

Pilot deployed the emergency floats on the skids too late, after the heli was already in the water. They need to be deployed before landing.

Is that what happened? Looked to me like one of the floats was defective because that one side is where it went under first

Was there any pun intended when he said "choppy cold water"?

This is what can happen when you do daredavil stuff. No matter how strong the safety rules are and how fun and adrenaline rushing it is, Life is much more worthy than a moment of excitement. You should always take into account that these incident are common in these types of activities because the posibility of risk of injuries are higher. If you could avoid doing this stuff, well avoid doing that

He had to shut the engine off , spinning blades entering water have a devastating effect on the fuselage. There's a training for choppers in the case thye have to land on water , people working on oil rig know thzt . . Did that chopper had life vest ? The pilot had to make his passengers wear life vest when he knew they would crash on water . Federal law on emergency procédure for chopper with passengers should be passed

OMG CAN'T BELIEVE 😢😓😢😓, JUST DAYS AGO I WAS THERE ON THAT HELICOPTER AND I PUBLISHED THE VIDEO ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL

pilot made a tough decision to go down on water instead of maybe would've been concrete or a building.. maybe saved a lot more than the five people who sadly died.
