The helicopter crash in the East River, in which unfortunately one person died, was indeed a tragedy.
Our police officers and firefighters and the Coast Guard responded immediately, going into the water to rescue those people. We must give them a very sincere “thank you” for their heroic efforts. Our emergency services in New York City are the best in the world, as evidenced by their rapid response to this accident.
There must be an intensive investigation to determine how this tragic accident occurred.
