A helicopter carrying WWE SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon and one other person made a controlled emergency landing in the Atlantic Ocean off Long Island’s Gilgo Beach Wednesday morning, according to Suffolk County officials.

The pilot reportedly made an emergency Mayday call just before landing in the water. McMahon and the other passenger ended up in the water but both thankfully had life vests on. A commercial flight heading to John F. Kennedy International Airport reported the helicopters Mayday to FAA controllers.

Although FAA reported the incident as a crash the helicopter was seen resting on pontoons and not submerged.

The report indicates both McMahon and the other person involved were ferried to shore and there were no reported injuries.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
