A helicopter has crashed into the Hudson River in New York City

A helicopter crashed into the Hudson River in New York City on Wednesday, the fire department said.  Only the pilot was on board, and was safely removed without injury. The crash occurred near a pier where Blade and other companies operate

A helicopter has crashed into the Hudson River in New York City, the fire department confirmed Wednesday afternoon. 

A spokesperson for the FDNY confirmed the crash and said the pilot, the only person on board, was safely removed from the water with no injuries. The department's verified Twitter account said there were two other non-life-threatening injuries. 

New York Waterway, a company that operates ferries between Manhattan and New Jersey, said in a press release that one of its boats had rescued the pilot of the helicopter at about 1:20pm. The company also assisted with rescue efforts when a U.S. Airways plane famously landed in the Hudson River in 2009. 

Local news channels showed a large police and fire response to the crash, as onlookers flooded the riverside park to get a better look at the incident. The West Side Highway was partially closed to southbound traffic following the crash as first responders towed the aircraft to the shore.

Multiple people on Twitter said they saw a helicopter plunge into the water around 2:20 pm local time, near a pier where Blade and other helicopters operate on Manhattan's West side at 30th street and 12th avenue.

The helicopter appears to be operated by Blade, and the company's logo was visible in photos and videos from the scene. Blade did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider. 

Blade is an on-demand helicopter service which operates shuttled from Manhattan to nearby airports, including Newark and JFK, for $195 per seat, according to the company's website. 

In March 2018, a private helicopter crashed into the East River in New York, killing five people on board.
