Adam, who is the boyfriend of Real Housewives of New York star Carole Radziwill, was flying a small plane in Iowa, when they had to make an emergency landing.
“Adam was very lucky. He walked away from the crash,” Radziwill says in a statement to PEOPLE. “He was admitted to the hospital and was released last night. He is doing well.”
Adam’s father remains hospitalized, a friend tells PEOPLE.
“Carole is going to Iowa to see him and Adam is at home resting now. He’s shaken up but he’s okay,” the friend says. “Everyone will be okay.”
Adam, 30, has showed off his love of aviation in the past on Instagram, posting photos of himself in the pilot’s chair and his father, David, in the passenger’s seat.

The accident comes nearly 17 years after Radziwill lost her best friend Carolyn Bessette and John F. Kennedy Jr., the cousin of her late husband Anthony Radziwill, in a tragic plane crash. Bessette’s sister Lauren Bessette also died in the crash when their plane went into the waters off Martha’s Vineyard. Radziwill lost her husband to cancer three weeks after the crash.
