PLANE MAKES EMERGENCY LANDING ON DEEGAN EXPRESSWAY
Officials say they were on a sightseeing trip, returning to Danbury, CT after circling the Statue of Liberty and taking in the view over the Bronx when they experienced engine trouble and had to put their small p;lane down on the Deegen Expressway. But here's the amazing part. City DOT workers, doing pothole repair and looking for spots the snowplows may have missed, spotted the plane coming down, quickly blocked traffic, giving them a place to land without hitting any cars. All three on board walked away. Only one required medical attention for a minor injury. Covering the story for 1010 WINS.
