Helicopter Goes Down In Hudson River

NEW YORK (June 30, 2013)--A helicopter went down in the Hudson River off Manhattan Sunday, but all five occupants were accounted for, police said.

The pilot and four passengers were rescued and taken to shore, the New York Police Department said.

The incident happened shortly before noon Sunday in the section of the river near 79th Street, but the circumstances were unclear.

The four passengers, two adults and two children, were tourists from Sweden, police said.

In January, a small plane crashed and sank into the icy Hudson River off Yonkers.

Two people were rescued.

In 2009, a US Airways flight landed safely on the Hudson after striking a flock of geese.

All 155 people aboard survived.
