DSP Pulls Two from Delaware River after Plane Crash

Posted:
 NEW CASTLE, Del. - Delaware State Police say two people have been rescued after a single engine plane went down in the Delaware River between Fort Delaware State Park and Fort Mott State Park in New Jersey.

State police say air traffic controllers at the New Castle County Airport lost contact with the plane around 10:45 Saturday morning.  The plane was discovered in the Delaware River with the two occupants in the water near the plane.

Delaware State Police Aviation Helicopter Trooper 4 removed the two people from the water and they were taken to shore to be treated for their injuries, which police say do not appear to be life-threatening.

The FAA says the pilot reported engine problems and police say the plane lost power. A major concern now, according to police, is that there is still about 50 gallons of fuel on the plane.  An  investigation is ongoing.
