A tour helicopter carrying five passengers near the USS Arizona memorial at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii crashed into the water in a horrifying accident Thursday morning.

The video was captured by YouTube user “mrmotofy” and shows the helicopter rapidly losing elevation before plunging into the water at roughly 10:45 a.m. local Hawaii time.


The five passengers were rescued by police and onlookers then rushed to the hospital for medical attention. At least one of the passengers is in critical condition, according to the Star Advertiser. Paramedics were seen preforming CPR on at least one passenger.

Amber Moncrieff, a tourist from Australia, witnessed the crash and was impressed by the number of people she saw rushing to help.

“When something bad happens, so many people will come out and help,” she told the Star Advertiser.
