Two dead in chopper crash in NY

At least two people were killed and one was rescued after a helicopter went down Sunday evening in New York's East River, according to Eric Phillips, the NY mayor's spokesman.

"A helicopter earlier this evening descended into the East River near East 90 St.", said the New York Police Department (NYPD) on Twitter.

The cause of the helicopter accident is still not clear and is under investigation. It's reportedly upside down in the river.

Eric Phillips, a spokesman for the mayor's office, confirmed the fatalities, tweeting, there's "At least one survivor, at least two fatalities". Helicopters fly people around the city for business, traffic reports, medical reasons and tourism.

Three passengers were taken to hospital in a critical condition, according to New York Police. At the time, the temperature was below 40 degrees Farenheit (4 degrees Celsius). After the 7 p.m. crash in the East River, a group of rescue boats pulled a third person from the water. The helicopter can be seen landing hard and tipping over.

This is a developing story.
