The Western Star - - Sports -

GILGO BEACH, N.Y. - A he­li­copter car­ry­ing the son of World Wrestling En­ter­tain­ment CEO Vince McMa­hon made an emer­gency land­ing Wednes­day in the ocean off New York, and nei­ther the pi­lot nor pas­sen­ger were hurt.

Shane McMa­hon, also a WWE ex­ec­u­tive, was the pas­sen­ger in the Robin­son R 44 he­li­copter that came down in the At­lantic Ocean off Long Is­land’s Gilgo Beach late Wednes­day morn­ing. The red air­craft could be seen bob­bing on its bright yel­low pon­toons as small boats cir­cled about a halfmile south of the beach.

“It was very un­nerv­ing,” McMa­hon said to re­porters later. But the pi­lot “was su­per calm which made me su­per calm and we landed per­fectly.” Cana­di­ans post wins in world ju­nior squash TAU­RANGA, New Zealand - Canada’s Ni­cole Ken­dall and Charlotte Or­cutt posted sec­ond-round vic­to­ries Wednes­day at the world ju­nior squash cham­pi­onships. Ken­dall, from New­mar­ket, Ont., de­feated Amer­i­can Laila Sedky 11-4, 8-11, 11-4, 11-8 at the Devoy Squash & Fit­ness Cen­tre. Or­cutt, from Toronto, beat Fanny Segers of France 10-12, 11-9, 11-9, 14-12.
