Authorities: Small, private plane crashes off the Hamptons

WESTHAMPTON BEACH, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities on Long Island say a small private plane carrying three people crashed into the ocean Saturday several miles off the Hamptons.

New York State Police say in a press release that one body has been recovered.

Assistant Chief Kevin Raynor of the Westhampton Beach Fire Department says witnesses reported the plane hurtling down into the ocean off the village of Quogue. The aircraft hit the water around 11 a.m.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Steve Strohmaier says rescue operations are underway. The Coast Guard, the New York Air National Guard, the Suffolk County sheriff’s office and a commercial salvage vessel are involved.

Raynor says people on the beach reported the plane sputtering before it crashed.

The Connecticut Airport Authority says the plane took off from Danbury Municipal Airport.
