Two TX men killed in NYC helicopter crash

Posted: Updated:

Five passengers were killed Sunday in a helicopter crash in New York City - two of which were Texans.

Those victims have been identified as North Texans Brian McDaniel, a 26-year-old Dallas firefighter, and his longtime friend, 26-year-old Trevor Cadigan.

The longtime friends had gone to Bishop Lynch High School together.

Cadigan, a recent Southern Methodist University graduate and son of a Dallas broadcaster, had moved to New York in October of 2017.

McDaniel was visiting Cadigan when they decided to take a sightseeing flight.

In the seconds after liftoff, Cadigan shared a short video on his Instagram page, showing he and McDaniel in the flight's first moments.

The helicopter went plunging into the East River just minutes later.

McDaniel was a firefighter at Station 36 in Dallas, where he was about to celebrate two-years of employment.
