HASTINGS -

Two people were pulled from the Hudson River after their Jet Ski flipped over.

Hastings police say they received a call from the Coast Guard around 10:15 p.m. Thursday about two people missing in the water after they lost control of their Jet Ski.

A marine unit took to the water to search for the man and woman, Westchester County police searched above using their helicopter and Yonkers police worked the shore.

Officials say it took about 40 minutes to find the pair, but they were in the water for about two hours.

Both the man and the woman were wearing life jackets, and they are expected to be OK.

Police say it is not safe to go Jet Skiing on the Hudson River at night.
