Nassau County police are investigating if a body found in Island Park fell from an airplane. Witnesses told police the body fell from the sky.
Police say the male body apparently fell from a plane headed to John F. Kennedy airport in Queens. It was found around 6:30 p.m. Island Park is in the flight path of many planes going to and from the airport. A body found in Long Beach last February was determined to have fallen from an airplane flying overhead. Police believe that the person had been hiding in the plane's landing gear compartment and fell when the wheels were deployed.
