Shane McMahon Gives Update On His Condition Following Helicopter Crash

As noted, SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon was involved in a helicopter crash, as it landed in water off Gilgo Beach in New York this morning.

The plane departed Westchester County Airport, when a commercial flight heading to Kennedy airport heard the call and relayed it to controllers. Shane then provided an update, and a sign of gratitude for surviving the crash.
I'd like to thank the man upstairs for looking out this morning & thanks to pilot Mario, Suffolk County Marine Bureau & Babylon Coast Guard.

A helicopter carrying Shane McMahon made an emergency landing today in the Atlantic Ocean near Gilgo Beach on Long Island, N.Y.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the emergency landing occurred around 10:25 a.m. ET about a half-mile off shore.

The SmackDown LIVE Commissioner spoke with WWE.com after the incident to confirm he and his pilot were fine and escaped injuries from the landing. He explained that he was en route to visiting family on Eastern Long Island when the helicopter troubles started.

"I would like to thank our pilot, Mario, who did a heroic job of landing us safely in the water, the Suffolk County Marine Bureau who were first on the scene, all the lifeguards who came out to assist us and the Fire Island Coast Guard station," he said.

McMahon reiterated that the WWE Universe shouldn't worry and that he won't need to step away from his SmackDown LIVE responsibilities.

"Everyone is safe and sound," he said. "I look forward to seeing everyone at WWE Battleground in Philadelphia this Sunday."
