WWE's Shane McMahon has walked away unhurt after a helicopter he was in made an emergency landing in the Atlantic Ocean.

McMahon was the passenger on a Robinson R44 helicopter that was forced to come down just off the coast of Long Island, New York.
Both McMahon and his pilot, Mario Regtien, avoided injury .
"It's very unsettling when all of a sudden you have something happen, you hear a bang and say you have to do an emergency landing in the water," McMahon told reporters after he was dragged to safety by the coast guard and NYPD specialists.

"We were just coming in for an emergency landing. I said ok. He said here in the water. I said all right. He deployed the pontoons and everything happened so quickly you don't have time to react.
"But the pilot Mario was fantastic. When he landed it was like landing on the ground. He did an amazing job."
The helicopter took off from Westchester County Airport in White Plains, NY, and the pilot had issued a mayday call before making the emergency landing.

WWE confirmed McMahon will not be taking a break from his role as commissioner of Smackdown Live and is expected back at work at WWE Battleground, on Monday night.
