According to reports, the helicopter was bringing Shane from New York City to Westhampton to visit family when the pilot realized it was having trouble and would need to crash-land. McMahon, who has jumped off way higher things than a helicopter in his pro wrestling career, was apparently unfazed.

McMahon said at a press conference:

"First of all, I'd like to thank the pilot, Mario. He did an amazing job. He was cool under pressure. I couldn't have been in better hands. He explained everything as it was happening. I'd also like to thank the Coast Guard, who was there instantaneously, Suffolk County Marine, a bureau that was there, the lifeguards that came to the beach. Just thankful that everything worked out well and that we're here."

On Twitter, McMahon thanked "the man upstairs" for looking out for him:

It's good to know that McMahon and God have put aside their differences since Shane defeated God in a tag team match at WWE Backlash in 2006.
