NEW YORK (AP) — A New York congresswoman on Monday night called on the Federal Aviation Administration to ban "non-essential" helicopter flights over Manhattan following a crash in the city.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney vowed Monday to hold the agency "accountable" for what happened.

The Manhattan Democrat said she would also consider pursuing legislation if necessary.

Maloney says she doesn't believe that executive travel or tourist trips would qualify as essential travel.

The proposed ban would only apply to helicopters and not other small aircraft.
