A sightseeing helicopter crashed into the East River in New York and sank. All five people aboard were rescued but one man who was trapped under water more than 90 minutes died nine hours later, authorities said. The other four, including the 22-year-old pilot, were pulled out of the water by harbor police, who found two men clinging to pontoons and two grasping for other bits of wreckage. They were not seriously injured.

A corporate helicopter with four people aboard crashed into the East River off midtown Manhattan seconds after takeoff Tuesday, killing one person and critically injuring at least one other, authorities said. "It appears the tail rotor came off, for whatever reason," Police Commissioner Howard Safir said. Police did not identify the victims, but said the chopper was owned by the Colgate-Palmolive Co. and was on its way to White Plains after dropping off two passengers from Piscataway, N.J.
