Video Shows Fatal Helicopter Crash Into East River


A Liberty Helicopters aircraft crashed into the East River Sunday.  The helicopter was carrying photography tourists around the city before the pilot issued a mayday call.

A photo below shows the last photos of the victims before taking off, taken by Eric Adams, a passenger on another scheduled flight.   Initial reports say harnesses worn by the victims hindered their ability to exit the helicopter (show in photo).
