A Cargo Plane With An Engine Problem Crashes Off The Coast Of Hawaii, Killing Two People.


HONOLULU (AP) — Two people were rescued after a cargo plane made an emergency landing in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii on Friday morning.

Transair Flight 810's pilots reported engine trouble and were attempting to return to Honolulu when they were forced to land the Boeing 737 cargo plane in the water around 2:30 a.m., according to a statement from the Federal Aviation Administration.

According to the statement, the Coast Guard rescued both crew members.

The crash happened about 2 miles (3 kilometers) off Kalaeloa Airport, according to the state Department of Transportation, according to Hawaii News Now.

The Honolulu Fire Department and the Coast Guard were called in.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will conduct their own investigation.

There was no additional information released right away.
