Investigations are continuing into the accident
A federal official said the aircraft appeared to be a sight-seeing helicopter.
The company has "a fleet of 10 state-of-the-art Airbus helicopters (formerly American Eurcopter)", according to the website. Initial reports based on an interview with the pilot suggested a passenger's personal bag may have hit the emergency fuel shutoff button accidentally before the crash, though investigators had not yet officially announced a cause. The pilot of the helicopter was able to free himself and was the only survivor.
The five passengers killed in the crash were identified by a police source as Brian McDaniel, a firefighter from Dallas; Trevor Cadigan, a video journalist originally from Dallas; Carla Vallejos Blanco, a tourist from Argentina and two helicopter employees, Tristan Hill and Daniel Thompson.
He worked at Fire Station 36 near Pinkston High School in West Dallas for nearly two years and was in NY on vacation.
"Despite his short tenure, hearts are heavy with grief", the department said in a statement.
McDaniel was visiting Cadigan, who had recently finished an internship at the Business Insider news site.
Also killed in the crash was Cadigan, a former WFAA intern and the son of longtime WFAA Production Manager Jerry Cadigan.
Another Eurocopter AS350 - owned by Nevada-based Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters - crashed on an air tour out of Las Vegas, in the Grand Wash Cliffs area, near Meadview, on August 10, 2001.
Shortly after 2 a.m., Howard received a call back from the NYPD.
He reported "an engine failure over the East River" and referenced a hotel, while the person at the other end of the transmission had trouble making out what the pilot was saying.
