NEW YORK — The National Transportation Safety Board says it’s determining whether to investigate a seaplane mishap on New York’s East River.
Spokesman Eric Weiss said Saturday the NTSB was collecting information to make the decision.
The plane made a hard landing in the river on Friday evening with 10 people aboard. All were rescued and declined medical attention.
The passengers aboard the East Hampton, New York-bound plane included TV producer Bill Lawrence, the creator of “Scrubs” and other shows.
Plane operator Tailwind Air LLC said the charter flight aborted its takeoff from a Manhattan seaplane terminal. The company said it resumed normal operations Friday and was grateful that no one was seriously injured.
West Harrison, New York-based Tailwind Air had no immediate updates Saturday.
