Small Plane Makes Emergency Landing in Hudson River [VIDEOS]

1

A small seaplane conducted an emergency landing in the Hudson River in Rockland County on Tuesday evening.

Police from Piermont and Orangetown were on scene at around 6 p.m., about 20 miles north of New York City.

Visibility in the area was very poor due to heavy fog, and the pilot landed the aircraft in the water as a precautionary measure. After landing, the battery of the plane died so the pilot requested to be towed in.

The pilot was the only person aboard the aircraft and he was uninjured.

Officials were seen using a rope to pull the plane from the water.

Piermont FD and Piermont Ems are operating at the end of the pier with a plane down in the water. There are no injuries and the plane is currently being removed from the water.
