(Newser) – NBC has obtained a video capturing Saturday’s mid-air collision over the Hudson River. Shot by an Italian tourist who was on a boat on the river, it’s the first known video of the crash. In it, the plane appears to come up behind the helicopter, climbing and turning. The helicopter clips its wing with its rotors, and both fall as onlookers aboard the boat gasp in horror.
