Twitter footage captured the moment a helicopter crashed into the East River
14 March, 2018, 00:23
As for what caused the helicopter to go down, a source familiar with the investigation says the pilot told police he observed a "tether from a front passenger's harness wrapped around the fuel shut off lever, which had accidentally cut off fuel supply to the engine resulting in engine failure".
The official was briefed on the investigation but was not authorized to speak publicly about it and spoke on the condition of anonymity.
NTSB member Bella Dinh-Zarr said the agency hasn't spoken to the pilot but hopes to do so.
News reports indicate that the pilot reported engine failure in a mayday call immediately before the crash.
The five passengers trapped in a helicopter that ditched into the East River off NY on Sunday night may have died because they were wearing hard-to-remove harnesses.

As Cadigan grins widely into the camera, he angles his phone to show McDaniel sitting just behind him. But the pilot appeared on the surface, holding onto a flotation device as a tugboat and then police boats approached.
