(Newser) – A helicopter carrying five people made an emergency landing in the Hudson River just before noon today, reports the New York Post, and all aboard are safe and accounted for. The aircraft was reportedly carrying four tourists—two adults and two teenagers—and a pilot when it splashed down near 79th Street. The cause of the crash isn't clear, and the chopper itself is reportedly floating south.

Well, it's a good thing the helicopter was carrying a pilot too.
