The two-person Robinson R44 helicopter made the emergency landing off Gilgo Beach, New York, as McMahon and pilot Mario Regtien managed to swim away from the aircraft unharmed.

The red aircraft managed to float on the water after the landing skids were inflated and a kayaker rescued one of the survivors.

According to NBC, a mayday call was made and a commercial flight heading to JFK Airport alerted flight controllers.

McMahon told ABC news: “It’s very unsettling, when you have something happen, you hear a bang and then you start saying ‘we’re going to do an emergency landing in the water.’

“But Mario was super calm, which made me super calm, and we landed perfectly.”

The son of WWE supremo Vince is a minority shareholder in the hugely successful wrestling franchise.

The WWE said in a statement: “A helicopter carrying Shane McMahon made an emergency landing in the Atlantic Ocean near Giglio Beach on Long Island, NY.

“According to the Feder Aviation Administration, the emergency landing occurred around 10.25am ET about a half-mile off shore.

“McMahon reiterated that the WWE Universe shouldn’t worry and that he won’t need to step away from his SmackDown LIVE responsibilities.”

According to the FAA, there have been 39 crashes involving the same type of aircraft in the last five years and 203 people have died in them since 1993.
