FRIDAY HARBOR, Wash. (AP) — Two people survived after their small plane crashed into the water near the San Juan Islands Sunday evening, according to the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office.

Emergency managers and the Coast Guard were sent to the south end of Blakley Island after receiving a report of the crash. But when they arrived they found the two on board had managed to make it back to shore, KOMO reported.

It’s unclear if the two suffered any injuries but a medical helicopter was at the scene on standby, deputies said.
