  • Helicopter crash lands on Hudson River in NYC pilot who had no passengers safely makes it to shore

NY -A pilot was pulled from the Hudson River after a helicopter crashed in the water near where the Lincoln Tunnel comes into Manhattan, authorities said.

The helicopter fell short of the landing pad on West 30th Street.

It's believed no passengers were aboard the chopper.

A mobile phone video of the helicopter going down, taken by a WCBS TV editor, showed it descending into the river just feet from the helipad.

The helicopter hit the water around 2:20 p.m., according to the Daily News, and no injuries have been reported. Deckhand Edwin Montoya used a maritime rescue device called a Jason's Cradle off the bow of the ship to help pull the pilot aboard, according to the ferry company.

"It was just instinct". Just another day for NY Waterway rescues. "We're right here. Edwin Montoya is an outstanding deckhand. He moved instantly to the rescue", NY Waterway Capt. Adam Sciaino said in a statement. Fortunately, the pilot - 34-year-old Eric Morales - was alone in the helicopter when it descended into the water, and he only sustained non-life-threatening injuries, according to the CBS News.
