              I wonder if they were killed on impact or if they drowned because they couldn’t unhardness themselves

                      LOL why is the black guy smiling???? Why are they all smiling...because they know this all a big LIE. No helicopter crashed..the helicopter in the water is NOT even a real helicopter...this is total bull shit again brought to you by these lying bastards on ABC..and ALL networks. Don't believe anything they say....no one died..they are LAUGHING AT YOU for believing their bull shit. And the helicopter is right there near the dock????? Really...it was not a real helicopter but Hollywood once again. Liars, liars, liars. No one died...no one.

                            They need to have a safety demonstration before take off..... that accident landed pretty well..... there was no way at all those people should have died. If they knew how to unlock those safety belts they may have gotten out. Shock value plus freeze and no idea how to unlock .. no reason at all

                                    Also, the pilot should have taken care of his passengers instead of being selfish.

                                        It was quite easy for the pilot to escape, but maybe he should have stayed a little longer in the water with his passengers... they clearly needed help to survive. Idiotic death traps

                                                      *The lawsuit claims that FlyNYON and NYONAir both allegedly "implemented a policy to cinch passengers into heavy duty harnesses which are tied to the helicopter floor with only a knife for passengers to free themselves from [frigid] waters."*

                                                      Now we know why they couldn't simply unfasten.

                                                        Yeah, they didn't want them to fall out while the door was open. Did you not watch the video? Lawsuits involving air incidents are almost always a load of crap. Never get your info from them.

                                                          After this incident, the FAA MUST require TWO FIXED PONTOONS (one on each side of the helicopter) on any ANY helicopter that flies over water with passengers. Forget that crap of having "inflatable" pontoons. Look what happened here, this helicopter had 6 SEPARATE INFLATABLE PONTOONS. That is a 1 in 6 chance that one will FAIL which is exactly what happened here. The imbalance of the pontoon that did not inflate caused the helicopter to tip over. IF..... this helicopter had been been equipped with two fixed pontoons NO ONE would have died in this incident.

He said Mayday 3 times and the dispatcher was like: can you please speak slower and clearly? I cannot hear. Then a second dispatcher took over and said that was a mayday call - meaning, mayday has just one meaning, dont ask to clarify anything! RIP.

Either way, I feel like having seatbelt cutters would be helpful on these kinds of things. So sad those lives were lost, what a horrible way to go. Plus I’m not sure how long they would have lasted in that cold of water.
