A small plane crashed into the Hudson River off Yonkers, NY on Sunday night.

Two people, a male and female in their 30s, were the only two people aboard. They were rescued from the water wearing life jackets about 20 to 30 minutes after the plane went down by emergency responders. The two were then taken to Jacobi Medical Center where they were treated for hypothermia and are in stable condition.

Four years ago Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger crash landed a US Airways flight on the Hudson River. No lives were lost and the incident is now referred to as the ”Miracle On The Hudson.” Sullenberger was flying a commercial Airbus A320, while the small plane that went down today was a Piper PA-32 single-engine aircraft, according to local officials.
