Pair rescued after plane crashes into Hudson River

Two people have been rescued from a single-engine plane that crashed and sank into the Hudson River.

Police say the small plane with two people aboard crashed just before 5:30 p.m. ET Sunday off Yonkers, N.Y.

Authorities say the two survivors were wearing life vests when they 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 pilot told local authorities that the flight departed from the Trenton-Robbinsville Airport in Robbinsville, N.J.
