Watching the local NYC ABC News affiliate and they have not said anything. I am in a Ramp Tower at LGA with a clear view of the Whitestone Bridge, and if this actually happened there would be many helicopters hovering overhead and there are none. I am guessing and hoping this is a false report.

Its been over 2hrs since it was first reported on the Tower frequency. The tower asked the helicopter
where they were going, and the helicopter, Coast Guard, replied there was a helicopter in the water
near the Whitestone Bridge. Perhaps it was a training excercise.
