The craziest thing about this tragedy is that someone's luggage hit the emergency fuel stop button. Now if that button is that easily accessible to anyone, something is very wrong.

This is so sad. It’s amazing that rescue divers acted so fast that they were able to bring two victims up in critical condition. It’s heartbreaking that they didn’t make it.

Clearly time for some new redesigning. A fuel button easily pressed? Or a harness that your stuck in? Wtf

They were flying with doors removed but they wore a safety harness that apparently did not have a quick release, or the passengers were not properly briefed on how to get out of those restraints quickly. The pilot probably only wore a normal seatbelt for the cockpit and was able to egress the helicopter before it flipped over. Two passengers died (drowned) in the helicopter and the other three died at a hospital. RIP

How do you even open the door to get out of a helicopter? That is what caused the drowning. They can't get out of the thing.

The only reasonable explanation to this is the Russians hacked into the Helicopters electronics

Hopefully people will think twice before going on these chartered helicopter tours. They just aren't safe enough.

Upon declaring an emergency, the pilot should cut the engine off and auto-rotated into the water. This would have prevented the rotors from turning with such impact when they hit the water. It was the FACT that the engine remained ON upon water touchdown that caused the helicopter to turn over (also it appears at least one pontoon did not inflate causing an uneven landing surface i.e. the water). Also, the passengers should have been instructed to unhook their harnesses BEFORE the copter hit the water. The sad thing here is that it appears they all survived the crash but drowned because they couldn't get out of their harnesses.

Pilot in NY Helicopter Crash is 33 Years Old, and Name is Vance. Ring a Bell? Yeah, Sand Hook. Vance =20 and 18 in Numerology. 2018....THIS is THE Year! I bet no one even died on that effing Helicopter. Any actual proof of Passengers? Richard Consonants=33, Vowels=10/1. Coincidence?!
