A small plane plunged into the Hudson River around 6 p.m. this evening near the Yonkers Pier, officials said.

A pair of occupants wearing life jackets were fished out of the water uninjured, according to Yonkers cops.

NYPD and FDNY divers were called to the scene to assist in rescue efforts but it’s unclear if the two occupants were picked up by emergency crews or private boaters.

The plane sank shortly after the two people were rescued.

It remains unclear if there was anyone else on the plane when it went down roughly four miles north of the George Washington Bridge.

This evening’s plunge comes four years after Chesley Sullenberger’s famed “Miracle on the Hudson” landing.
