At least one person is dead after a small plane crashed in the Atlantic Ocean on Saturday, just a mile off the coast New York, officials said.

Police responded to multiple 911 calls around 10:59 a.m., telling them that a small plane carrying at least three people had crashed in the water just a mile off a beach near the Village of Quogue, Long Island, state officials said in a press release.

One body was recovered but authorities have not identified the individual.

Assistant Chief Kevin Raynor of the Westhampton Beach Fire Department said that a witness reported seeing the plane sputtering before going down. It was not immediately clear what caused the aircraft to go down.
