A small helicopter with WWE’s Shane McMahon on-board crash landed off Gilgo Beach in New York Wednesday morning.
According to WPVI, the Robinson R-44 helicopter landed in the water around 10:30 a.m.
McMahon and the pilot were the only souls on-board—neither were injured.
“It’s very unsettling when all the sudden you have something happen,” McMahon told WABC. “You hear a bang, and then you start saying, ‘We’re going to do an emergency landing in the water.’ So yes, it was very unnerving. But again, Mario was super calm, which made me super calm. And we landed perfectly.”
I’d like to thank the man upstairs for looking out this morning & thanks to pilot Mario, Suffolk County Marine Bureau & Babylon Coast Guard.
