Yonkers police say there were only two people aboard the plane, which crashed and sank early Sunday evening. The conditions of the two survivors were not immediately known.
The plane was coming from Groton when the pilot deployed the parachute because of an unspecified mechanical problem. The plane went down near South Street and Wixted Avenue in Danbury around 7:30 p.m.
