Stations Cover Deadly Helicopter Crash

A helicopter crashed and sank yesterday afternoon in the East River near 34th Street. Our sister site TVSpy reports WCBS/Channel 2 anchor Maurice DuBois was first on the air. As the station’s coverage continued, Chris Wragge was joined live from the scene.

Channel 2, according to the on-screen graphic, had exclusive rescue video.

In a bizarre moment, with anchors Liz Cho and David Navarro on the air, WABC/Channel 7 put a Twitter photo on the screen from WPIX/Channel 11 reporter Greg Mocker (as shown above).

“I posted it to Twitter,” Mocker tells FishbowlNY. “They must follow @gregmocker.” 

Mocker is referred to as an “eyewitness at the scene.”  

TVSpy has details on of how other stations handled the story.

Update: Mocker gave a mention to FishbowlNY during the WPIX 5 p.m. newscast on Wednesday.
