A small plane made an emergency landing on a Long Island beach Friday morning, authorities say.

Chopper 4 footage from the scene shows a Cessna 152 on the beach near Sunken Meadow Park in Suffolk County.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said the two people aboard the aircraft were not injured. 

It's not clear why the plane had to make the landing on the beach.

The FAA says it is investigating. 

The landing comes less than a week after a Cirrus SR22 lost engine power near Republic Airport in Farmingdale.

Video of the crash was obtained by NBC 4 New York and showed the plane floating to the ground using a parachute.
