I'd say they all survived the crash(more like hard landing) but drowned sadly, except for the pilot. Tragedy.

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.

pilot was the only one trained to escape a sinking helicopter. Everyone takes that course before working offshore in the oilfield.

The Pilot shouldn't have allowed a front passenger being that the fuel shut off lever is unguarded. It's his job to make sure his bird and passengers are safe. Why was their a passenger in the front next to the unguarded fuel lever with loose straps flailing around? Senseless .

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.

There is a procedure for getting out. Check out "Underwater Escape Training - HUET"
