Five people total were on board the helicopter, the Coast Guard said, including a 16-year-old boy, who was in critical condition following the crash, according to the Honolulu Emergency Services Department.

Two more passengers, a 50-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman, were treated by EMS and taken to a local hospital in stable condition.
