Plane Crashes Into Lake, Passengers Rescued

Plane Crashes Into Lake, Passengers Rescued

A small seaplane went down into Lake Goodwin Sunday, dunking its passengers but they were safely rescued and uninjured, officials said.

The crash was reported about 4:20 p.m., south of Stanwood, according to Snohomish County sheriff's authorities.

Reports indicated two people --the 51-year-old pilot and his passenger -- were on board. 

Both were in the water a short time before a resident in a boat got them out and took them to shore.

Medics examined both men, who were shaken up a bit but not injured.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Marine Services Unit is working with the FAA, Washington Department of Ecology, and Washington Fish and Wildlife to investigate the cause and mitigate any potential environment issues, officials said.

The aircraft involved was described as a 2007 Searey floatplane with a boat  hull, according to sheriff's Lt. Rodney Rochon.
