On Saturday a helicopter crashed into the ocean at a Miami beach. The crash happened only a few feet from swimmers in the water.
The Miami Beach Police tweeted on Saturday saying, “This afternoon at 1:10 p.m., MBPD received a call of a helicopter crash in the ocean near 10 Street. Police and @MiamiBeachFire responded to the scene along with several partner agencies. Two occupants have been transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital in stable condition.”
It was later reported that the helicopter contained three passengers total. The Miami Beach police department also tweeted that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was responding to the scene.
The video footage was shared by the police in the tweet, which showed the helicopter crashing into the water just near a crowd of swimmers (The Guardian). The crash happened off of South Beach.
The police blocked off a two-block stretch of the beach in light of the accident. According to a statement from the FAA, the helicopter is a Robinson R44 (CNN). The crash resulted from “unknown circumstances.” The statement read “The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate. The NTSB will be in charge of the investigation and will provide additional updates.”
