14-Jun-12 N1089N Robinson R22M Oak Island, US-North Carolina

Robinson R22 Mariner operating at low level (it usually flies aerial photography work with boats) crashed into the sea and turned over.  Ambulances transported occupants Will Mistrot and Marie Kojimoto to hospital but their injuries were not considered life-threatening

We note that the initial press reports (see below) indicated that Mr Mistrot was the pilot, but it is evident from the later and more thorough NTSB report refering to the pilot in the female, that it was actually Ms Kojimoto, and thus Mr Mistrot was the passenger.
