Plane crashes into Hudson, two rescued

A small plane crashed into the Hudson River on Sunday evening, according to the Associated Press.

Two people were rescued Sunday when their single-engine plane crashed and sank into the icy Hudson River off Yonkers.

The small plane was carrying a man and a woman on a sightseeing trip, and crashed around 5 p.m., Yonkers Police Lt. Phil Collins told the Associated Press.

The two were wearing life vests and were able to get out of the plane before it sank.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen described the plane as a Piper PA-32.

According to the AP, Bergen said the pilot told local authorities the flight left from the Trenton-Robbinsville Airport in Robbinsville, N.J. It was flying under visual flight rules and not receiving air traffic control services, she said.

There is still no word on what caused the crash.
