Gerson Salmon-Negron, 23 is the only missing passenger after the plane, a Piper PA-28, went down just after 11 p.m. Saturday in Setauket Harbor near Port Jefferson. Three others were also on board at the time of the crash.

Student pilot Austricio Ramirez, 25, was flying when the plane ran into engine trouble and he turned controls over to the 36-year-old instructor pilot, Nelson Gomez. Also on the plane was 25-year-old Wady Perez of Queens.

Eddie Schmidt said he immediately ran to his friend’s dock when he heard the plane crash Saturday night, but he didn’t expect what happened next.

“We heard a gentleman’s voice coming from the water screaming, ‘Help, help!” Schmidt told CBS2’s Diane Macedo. “It seemed as though his voice was coming from the center of the harbor.”

The FAA is investigating and the National Transportation Safety Board will determine the probable cause.

A tour helicopter plunged into the waters near the USS Arizona Memorial visitor center theater this morning, injuring the five people on board who were rushed to shore by rescue personnel and bystanders.

At least one person, a 16-year-old boy, was critically injured, city Emergency Medical Services reported. Paramedics took two others, a 50-year-old man and 45-year-old woman, to the hospital in stable condition, following the crash at about 10:30 a.m.

Two other people were taken to the hospital by federal firefighters. No information was immediately available on their conditions.

A video posted on YouTube showed the helicopter approaching the shoreline of the visitors center and crashing about 10 feet offshore.

The Navy said the helicopter apparently belonged to Genesis Aviation. The company features the Hawaii News Now helicopter on its website.

A check of the tail number of the helicopter that crashed showed it is a 1979 Bell 206B helicopter, known as a Jet Ranger. According to FAA records, the Bell 206B is owned by Jeffrey Gebhard, of Kailua, who owns Genesis Aviation. The helicopter has a valid certificate that was issued in August.

A flight from Sioux Falls to Chicago made an emergency landing Thursday in Iowa.

American Airlines Flight 3047 landed in Waterloo, Iowa, at 1:17 p.m. after reports of smoke in the cabin, Waterloo airport director Keith Kaspari said.

Sioux Falls resident Jeffrey Miller was one of the 26 passengers on the flight. Miller said smoke was visible in the cabin before the pilot announced the emergency landing.

“They came on and said, ‘We obviously have smoke in the plane. We are going to need to make an emergency landing,’” Miller said.

None of the passengers were children, Miller said, and everyone remained calm as the plane descended. “It was quiet terror,” he said. “Once we all landed here, everyone was like, ‘Oh my God, what just happened?’”

The cause of the smoke has not been determined, Kaspari said, but maintenance crews were working to determine the cause of the problem and fix the aircraft.

Pilot dies in small aircraft crash in Marshville

Authorities have confirmed that the pilot of a small aircraft that crashed Thursday evening has died.

The small plane went down around 7 p.m. at Tarlton Mill Road near New Salem in Union County.

The pilot of the single-engine aircraft, 68-year-old James Cook, of Lexington, died in the crash. Authorities say Cook was on his way home from Daytona when he called in and reported having engine trouble.

Authorities say the plane nose-dived into a muddy wooded area about a quarter-mile from the closest road, on the end of what locals know as Polk Mountain.

The plane will likely be tough to retrieve because the ground is so wet. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Aviation Unit, AKA Snoopy, helped find the plane.

Friday morning the Union County Sheriff’s Office was at the scene investigating.  The NTSB is expected to arrive Friday afternoon.
