BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - The FBI says there was apparently nothing nefarious in the flight or crash of a camera-equipped model airplane at a Bridgeport power plant.
The Connecticut Post reports the plane was being flown by a Chinese national on Sunday when it crashed on the grounds of the PSEG plant on Bridgeport harbor.
Police were called, and they in turn notified the FBI.
Special agent Dan Curtin says the incident is still being investigated but that "it seems nothing nefarious was involved."
City police spokesman William Kaempffer says the man, in the U.S. on a student visa, was not charged with a crime.
Curtain says video footage from the model showed aerial views of Seaside Park and about two minutes of footage from around the power plant.

The cleanup has begun in some parts of Long Island while others continue to deal with flooding from heavy rain fall that began late Tuesday and intensified on Wednesday. Cars remain stranded after rain pounded the area. More than 13 inches of rain fell in Islip. The National Weather Service said the rain was the largest event on record for New York State in a 24-hour period.
