Shane McMahon was involved in a helicopter crash landing, thankfully surviving the incident.
McMahon's helicopter made an emergency landing in the waters off Gilgo Beach, which is located in Long Island, New York, around 10:30 a.m ET. McMahon and another passenger, who hasn't been identified at this time, were uninjured.
According to a report by CBS New York, the helicopter issued a mayday call prior to going down. A commercial flight headed to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York heard the call and relayed it to controllers. The helicopter went down about 2,000 feet from a lifeguard stand, where two lifeguards jumped into kayaks to help before the U.S. Coast Guard arrived to help remove the aircraft.
"It's very unsettling when all of a sudden you have something happen and hear a bang and then they say, 'We're going to do an emergency landing in the water.' It's very unnerving, but again [the other passenger rescued] was calm, so I was calm and we landed perfectly," McMahon said when interviewed after the crash landing.
McMahon made his return to WWE last year, competing at WrestleMania 32 against the Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match. He was an on-screen character regularly afterwards and later became the SmackDown Live commissioner. McMahon fought AJ Styles at this year's WrestleMania, losing in the pay-per-view's opening match.
The Federal Aviation Administration is currently investigating the incident.
