2 aboard banner-towing small plane survive crash into San Diego Bay
SAN DIEGO (AP) ' The pilot and passenger of a banner-towing plane have survived a crash into San Diego Bay.
The FAA says the pilot of the single-engine Cessna reported engine problems and went in the water south of the Coronado Bridge around 4:20 p.m. Saturday.
A Coast Guard rescue boat picked up the two and agency spokesman Henry Dunphy said they cleared medical examinations.
FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said the plane remained in the water. He said it was up to the San Diego Harbor Police or plane owner whether to rescue the aircraft or let it sink.
A call to a Harbor Police spokesman wasn't immediately returned.
