An NYPD Harbor Unit boat picked up the ten people, who were wearing life vests and sitting in the plane after it went down in the water, FDNY Deputy Assistant Chief Michael Gala said.

The Cessna Caravan C208 is registered to Tailwind Air Service, which provides shuttle service across the northeast and out to the Hamptons on Long Island, records show.

Emergency personnel have responded to a sea plane that landed in the East River near 23 Street. A passenger told Eyewitness News that the plane experienced a broken pontoon as it was taking off in Manhattan. A fire department boat towed the damaged plane back to the pier.

Lawrence, whose work also includes "Spin City" and "Cougar Town" in addition to "Scrubs", posted photos and a video of himself aboard the plane on social media.

Traffic was backed up on FDR Drive and dozens of people on the pier were told that their boat or plane was delayed because of the incident.

"The plane tried to take off a couple times".

He didn't hear yells for help or see anyone come out of the plane.

Craft said the travelers' spirits were high despite the hard landing.

"The pilot was calm and great", Lawrence said. They were taken to the 23rd Street Marina on the East Side.

"I'm definitely not going anywhere tonight", he added.
