Helicopter Crashes into Pearl Harbor; 1 Critically Injured
A Bell 206 helicopter crashed and sunk near the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, on February 18.
The private helicopter went down while it was carrying five people, including the pilot and a family of four visiting from Canada.
All five occupants of the aircraft survived the crash. However, one of them – a 16-year-old boy- was trapped underwater and had to be extricated from his seat. He was taken to hospital in critical condition.
Authorities believe the helicopter belongs to tour operator Genesis Aviation.
The FAA and the NTSB are investigating the cause of crash.
