Sunday, 30 Jun 2013 03:43 PM

New York authorities say a helicopter carrying four Swedish tourists has landed in the Hudson River off Manhattan, but everyone has been rescued.

The incident happened shortly before noon Sunday in the section of the river near 79th Street. The pilot and four passengers were taken to shore.

The fire department says the passengers were two adults and two children from Sweden.

In January, a small plane crashed and sank into the icy Hudson River off Yonkers. Two people were rescued.
