A 77-year-old pilot was rescued from Long Island Sound by a jet-skier after his plane crashed off of Westbrook Saturday afternoon.
State police say that Albert Sheehy of Cross River, N.Y. was in route to Danbury from Block Island when his single-engine propeller plane began experiencing engine trouble near Duck Island at around 3:30 p.m. Sheehy attempted to land his plane near I-95, but police say that the highway was too crowded for him to make a safe landing. Police say that Sheehy then decided to land in Long Island Sound instead.
After landing, Sheehy was rescued by a passing jet-skier. Sheehy, who was the pilot and sole occupant of the plane, was not injured during the crash.http://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/local-beat/Small-Plane-Crashes-off-Coast-of-Westbrook-52794742.html
