Rescue crews responded Sunday evening to a report of a downed aircraft and a possible person in distress in the water near Seabrook Beach in New Hampshire, United States Coast Guard officials said.
A person on the beach called 911 around 7:30 p.m. to report that a blue hang glider had crashed into the ocean about 600 yards off shore, officials said. Coast guard officials later said the aircraft was not a hang glider but a paraglider. Seabrook police said the machine in question was an “ultralight,” a lightweight fixed-wing aircraft, according to a statement from Seabrook police.
It is not yet clear if the glider was occupied or if there is anyone in the water, Coast Guard spokesman Zachary Hupp said Sunday night.
Local rescue teams are aiding Coast Guard officials in the search for the possible missing person.
Two weeks ago, Seabrook police and fire officials, along with a good samaritan, helped rescue several people from a rip current off Seabrook Beach. Two people died as a result of the dangerous current.
