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.
