(Newser) – Authorities in Hawaii say one person is in critical condition after a civilian helicopter with five people on board crashed into the Pacific Ocean near Pearl Harbor Thursday. An official with the US Navy in Honolulu says there were no fatalities in the crash, which occurred near the Arizona Memorial, a popular tourist destination in Oahu.

But a Honolulu Emergency Services Department spokesperson said one person is in critical condition. A Navy spokesperson said all five people were recovered from the water, and the copter ultimately sank in the ocean. Hawaii News Now reports that the occupants were on a sightseeing tour at the time, and the critically injured person is a 16-year-old boy. The crash was caught on video.
