It is likely that the family booked the helicopter excursion locally in New York.  Such excursions are a popular choice for many when visiting large cities in America, and most pass without consequence, save for the exhilarating memories.  No doubt the excursion provider was a reputable one and this is just an unfortunate incident that could not have been avoided; it is too early to reach any sweeping conclusions on the cause of the accident. 

News like this acts once again to highlight the importance of making sure you have comprehensive travel insurance before travelling abroad, particularly to the USA where hospital bills can quickly run into thousands of pounds.
