Shane McMahon Reportedly Survived A Helicopter Crash Landing In The Atlantic Ocean

Shane McMahon appears to have survived a helicopter crash landing.

According to CBS New York, Shane McMahon, the son of WWE owner Vince McMahon, survived a helicopter crash landing in the Atlantic Ocean on Wednesday morning.

McMahon was reportedly one of two people in a small helicopter that was forced to make an emergency landing a half mile off of Gilgo Beach. The incident occurred around 10:30 a.m.

Here's more, via CBS:

The chopper issued a mayday call prior to going down. A commercial flight headed to John F. Kennedy Airport 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.

McMahon and his colleague were reportedly uninjured, which is amazing.

McMahon, who has also wrestled, is a minority owner of WWE. It's great to hear that nobody was hurt.
