Tragically, the flight lasted only eleven minutes before it smashed into the East River, killing all five passengers. The only survivor was the pilot, Richard Vance. Vance told investigators that it was possible one of the passenger’s bags depressed an emergency fuel shut-off button, which would have cut power to the chopper and eventually caused the crash.
