Emergency crews responded after a helicopter crash landed in the Hudson River near 30th Street.
The 34-year-old pilot was the only person on-board when it happened around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.
He suffered a minor hand injury, while a dock worker slipped and injured his wrist while trying to get out of the way of the aircraft, according to the NYPD.
Sources tell NY1 the helicopter, which is operated by a charter company, was coming into the heliport from Kennedy Airport.
"As he was making his approach, he crashed landed approximately 150 feet from the helipad," FDNY Deputy Assistant Chief Michael Ajello tells NY1. "He was able to deploy his flotation device. He was able to get out of his helicopter, stand on the pad. There was a passing boat that picked him up and brought him into the heliport."
Weather at the time of the crash landing did not immediately appear to be a factor; however, it was windy, with gusts of 20 to 30 miles per hour reported in the area at the time of the crash landing.
Mayor de Blasio took to Twitter to weigh in on the incident, taking a moment to express relief that no one was seriously injured and gratitude towards the first responders who arrived on scene.
