2 rescued after jet ski accident in Lower Manhattan

NEW YORK — Two people were rescued after an accident involving a personal watercraft in Lower Manhattan on Saturday night.

It happened just before 7:30 p.m. near Battery Place and Vesey Street.

Authorities say a Jet Skier collided with someone in the water. At that time, one person was rescued and transported to a nearby hospital in unknown condition.

As CBS2’s Thalia Perez reports, officials say both FDNY and NYPD divers have been sent into the Hudson River to search for a second missing person.

After about three hours, a second person was rescued and taken to a local hospital.

Many of the details remain unclear and police say the investigation is ongoing.
