A haunting video shows the inside of a helicopter moments before it crashed in New York, killing all five passengers.

It was posted on Instagram by journalist Trevor Cadigan, who is named amongst those who died in the tragedy, as the chopper took off on Sunday.

Mr Cadigan, 26, is seen smiling in the footage, while fellow passengers smile and give a thumbs up before the fatal crash.

The 30-second clip also shows the helipad from the air as the chopper takes off.

The Eurocopter AS350, which had been hired for a photo shoot, crashed shortly after 7pm in the East River .

Only the pilot, Richard Vance, survived, and he told officials he believes a passenger's bag may have inadvertently hit the emergency fuel shut off button.
