Nine people were killed in New York when a small plane hit a helicopter over the Hudson river and both of them crashed into the water around noon yesterday (08/08/2009).
Five Italian tourist and a pilot were aboard the helicopter, while three people were travelling on the small plane, including a child.
Eye witnesses said they heard a loud boom, they saw a wing of a plane and the helicopter falling like a stone into the river. Debris fell on the New Yersey side of the river almost hitting motorists.
Rescue teams rushed to the scene, but found only wreckages and dead bodies. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said at press conference that most probably nobody survived the accident.
