Sources tell Eyewitness News that the helicopter filled with fumes at 4:00 p.m. while carrying the governor and a few aides back to New York City.
Governor Cuomo had just delivered a state of the state address in Albany.
The pilot landed the helicopter at Stewart Airport without incident.
It was apparently caused by an equipment malfunction.
No one was injured.
A short time later, Gov. Cuomo posted this message on social media:
3 days, 6 States of the State, 149 proposals, 9 hours of speeches, 1,260 miles & 1 emergency landing. Nothing can slow our progress.— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) January 11, 2017
