Richard Vance, 33, who was flying the helicopter, told authorities he believed a passenger’s bag might have hit an emergency fuel shutoff switch in the moments before the chopper went down. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said it would look at the switch, the chopper’s flotation devices and the photos on passengers’ cameras to figure out what caused the crash in the East River.
