A Helicopter crash into the east River on Sunday evening took the lives of 5 people, and only the pilot survived. Ongoing investigations are still being done, but it seems as if the leading cause of the disaster was a harness getting caught on a fuel shut-off switch.
Trevor Cadigan, 26, shared this video to his Instagram story leading up to the crash. He and his friends had just taken off for a sightseeing tour when the fatality occurred.
The crash into the frigid water happened just after 7 pm on Sunday. Cadigan moved from Dallas to NYC to pursue a journalism career, and his friends always described him as a risk taker.
