Five people are dead after a helicopter crashed into New York City's East River.

Police say all five were passengers on the helicopter, which was being chartered for a photo shoot. It went down Sunday evening near Gracie Mansion, the Mayoral residence.

A sixth person -- the pilot -- was able to free himself and was rescued by a passing tugboat. He is said to be talking with authorities.

Police and fire department divers pulled the bodies of the five passengers from the helicopter.

Video posted on twitter shows a red helicopter land hard in the water and then flip on its side as its rotors beat the water.
