Monday afternoon at 5:08pm:
Newport Fire Chief Rob Murphy says a single engine private aircraft came in for a very bumpy landing in Newport, onto the beach, just north of the north jetty this afternoon. It was a rough landing but all three occupants of the aircraft were able to get out okay. At least one was taken to Pacific Communities Hospital to be checked out. No names or city of residence were immediately released.
No word yet on what caused the emergency landing.
