MARATHON, FLA. (WSVN) - Rescue crews saved two passengers after, officials said, their small plane crashed near the Florida Keys, Saturday.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission responded to the call after, they said, the aircraft splashed down and sank near Marathon, just north of the Seven Mile Bridge.
FWC captured an overhead view of the sunken vessel.
The pilot and passenger managed to escape before the plane became fully submerged. They held on to buoys while waiting to be rescued.
Both were pulled from the water in good condition.
Officials are investigating what caused the plane to go down.
