YONKERS, N.Y. – New York authorities say two people have been rescued from a small plane that went down into the Hudson River off Yonkers.
Yonkers police say the small plane with only two people aboard crashed just before 5:30 p.m. Sunday.
Police say the two survivors were plucked from the waters about 20 to 30 minutes after the crash and taken to Jacobi Medical Center.
A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman described the plane as a Piper PA-32 single-engine aircraft. She says the survivors were wearing life vests when they were rescued by local authorities.
Lt. Toni Scherer of Empress Ambulance Service says the two -- a man and a woman in their 30s -- were treated for hypothermia and were listed in stable condition at Jacobi.
