New York City police (NYPD) and the U.S. Coast Guard plan a terrorism drill near Ellis and Liberty Islands in New York Harbor next week.
The NYPD Special Operations Division has scheduled the terror drill between noon and 1 p.m. on Thursday.
The terrorism exercise will simulate a report of shots fired on a New York Waterways vessel, followed by lost contact with the crew. Plans also call for the use of a NYPD helicopter.
