A Helicopter Crashed Into the Hudson River and the Pilot Survived

A helicopter crashed into the Hudson River yesterday and, fortunately, the pilot only suffered minor injuries.  Somebody shot video of it wobbling and then turning sideways, and dropping into the water.

According to one report, the helicopter was coming in for a landing and fell short of the pad.
