Two rescued from Hudson when small plane goes down

YONKERS – Police officers and fire personnel from Yonkers are credited with saving a man and woman who were in a six-seat plane that went down in the Hudson River off Yonkers just before 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

The plane landed in the water by the Glenwood train station and when rescue personnel accessed a boat belonging to the Hudson River Pilot House and went out on the river, the two people were in the water. They were rescued and the airplane submerged.

The occupants, believed to be the only two people on the plane, were a 39-year-old woman and 43-year-old man, both from New Jersey. They were taken by ambulance to an area trauma center where both are expected to survive.

The Yonkers Police Detective Division continues the investigation along with the Federal Aviation Administration.
