Ivanka, Jared in chopper scare

A HELICOPTER carrying first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, had to be rerouted after one of its engines failed, law enforcement officials told CNN.

The senior White House aides were flying from Washington, DC, to New York on Thursday afternoon in a two-engine helicopter when one engine failed, reported theNew York Post.

The chopper had to return to Ronald Reagan National Airport, where the couple hopped on a commercial flight instead.

It is unclear how far into the less than two-hour trip they were when the engine failed.

The aircraft was a Sikorsky owned by the Trump Organisation.

A spokesperson for the couple had no comment on the incident.
