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.
“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.
