Ferry incident near Statue of Liberty

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A minor ferry accident near Liberty Island injured a few crew members, according to reports. The ferry apparently made a hard landing as it was docking at the island.

The Miss New Jersey was carrying 497 passengers and nine crew members. Three crew members suffered minor injuries and refused medical attention, an official said.

Video from SkyFoxHD showed one NYPD helicopter and several vessels from the NYPD, FDNY, and Coast Guard on the water near Liberty Island as well as a marina in Jersey City, where The Miss New Jersey of Statue Cruises was moored.

Statue Cruises is the official ferry company that serves the Statue of Liberty.

Liberty Island reopened on July 4, 2013, after being closed since Superstorm Sandy caused damage to the island's infrastructure. Neighboring Ellis Island remains closed because of lingering storm damage.
