A small plane carrying two passengers has landed in the Delaware River near Harrah's Casino in Chester, Pa., according to the Coast Guard.

The passengers do not appear to be seriously injured, according to a Coast Guard official.

A dispatch center in Gloucester County, N.J. reported that the plane went down around 11 a.m. when it landed upside down in the river. The passengers were on top of the plane when rescue crews arrived.

Once the passengers were carried to shore, one was taken to an area hospital with head lacerations. A fuel spill was also reported, but authorities said the plane was carrying only about 15 gallons of fuel.

More information may be available later today.
