    No news on if there are any deaths or injuries. Plane may have hit a bird, or some form of obsticle for it to go down. Pilot made a soft landing on the water, no real damage to plane.

    I can't figure out how they are going to get them out without sinking the plane:confused:

    There was a few people divers pulled from the frigid water.

    Reports say the plane came in level as if it was landing on an airstrip. Reports say the plane didn't break up at all.
