  • NTSB investigators pore over Midtown NYC helicopter crash site as relatives of pilot grieve

"The only indication was a helicopter had to do an emergency or a hard landing, or crashed onto the rooftop of a building", Cuomo told the media after the hard landing.

"If you're a New Yorker, you have a level of PTSD, right, from 9/11". "So as soon as you hear an aircraft hit a building, I think my mind goes where every New Yorker's mind goes".

Linden airport director Paul Dudley described McCormack as "a highly seasoned" and "very well regarded" pilot.

Almost five years ago, in October 2014, McCormack was flying a different helicopter over the Hudson River with six tourists on board when a bird struck and broke part of the windshield, according to CNN affiliate WABC.

Dudley said he believed that McCormack had chose that building as the best possible spot - or the least bad spot - to land the helicopter.

Firefighters took to the scene as a three-alarm fire broke out. Other videos showed people evacuating the area in a hurry. "It's a big tragedy".

The crash and subsequent evacuation of the building stirred memories of the September 11, 2001 attacks and brought renewed calls for tighter restrictions for New York City airspace. He added there was no ongoing threat to the city following the "absolutely shocking, stunning incident". "But look, we don't know what happened and why it happened, this is very unusual".

"I want to just say, thank God for that".

The Federal Aviation Administration said that the helicopter was an Agusta A109E.

Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said there was no evidence the crash was terrorist-related and spoke about the unknowns surrounding the situation.

Before the crash, McCormack had flown a single passenger from Westchester County, north of New York City, at about 11:30 a.m. (15:30 GMT) and landed 15 minutes later at the heliport on the East River, federal investigator Doug Brazy told a news conference on Tuesday. Brazy said McCormack's planned route to Linden wouldn't have required him to contact air traffic control.

The crash happened shortly before 2 p.m. Monday, when clouds obscured the roof of the building. Winds were out of the east around 9 miles per hour at the time of the crash, though they had gusted to 20 miles per hour earlier in the day.
