The coast guard and the New York City Police Department?s aviation unit pulled two men from the Hudson River Monday, after their single engine plane plunged into the river near the Yonkers city pier.
The Piper Arrow plane, owned by the Trinity Flight School of Burlington NJ, was reportedly coming from an airport in South Jersey. On board were the pilot and his student. The plane?s engines reportedly shut down and when the men couldn?t get it restarted they were forced to ditch the plane.
The coast guard rescued one victim and the NYPD?s divers rescued the other man. The two men were taken to Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx where there are being treated for hypothermia and are listed in stable condition. The two rescue divers are also being treated there for the same condition. No word yet on the cause of the crash.
