East River Ferry boat makes hard landing

- A vessel with East River Ferry had a hard landing at a Lower Manhattan pier on Wednesday evening, officials said.

The ferry slammed into Pier 11 around 5:38 p.m., the FDNY said. Six people suffered minor injuries.

Video from SkyFoxHD showed that the ferry itself appeared largely undamaged.

Pier 11 is at South Street and Gouverneur Lane.

"We're currently running on 2-boat service at this time," East River Ferry tweeted. "Some pick ups may be skipped."

East River Ferry, part of NY Waterway, operates ferries that connect Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, and Governors Island.
