According to local time, the catastrophe in the early afternoon was a deadly victim: the driver who was on the plane and was alone on the helicopter.
The helicopter “got into” the floor of a skyscraper. The instantly lit building gave home to the offices of the French bank BNP Paribas. Firefighters and rescuers went to the scene with great force, and within minutes, Andrew Cuomo, the governor of the state of New York, who appeared in the city, appeared. President Donald Trump was immediately informed of the disaster, stating that it was not a terrorist attack but a traffic accident. The president then told Twitter that the government was ready to give any help.
The building was evacuated and the surrounding streets were closed. The eyewitnesses of the American television reported that the entire building was shaking when the helicopter hit, many of them immediately thinking of the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001.
The US Federal Aviation Authority announced in a communication that it had launched a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances of the accident. According to the first information, the disaster was probably caused by the technical failure of the helicopter.
