HARBOR BEACH, Mich. (AP) ' Authorities say the New York pilot of a small plane that crashed in Lake Huron has been rescued in good condition after treading water all night off the Michigan coast.

The man was picked up by a fishing boat around 10:20 a.m. Wednesday, more than 17 hours after the Federal Aviation Administration lost contact with him Tuesday.

Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson identified the pilot as 42-year-old Michael Trapp of Gouverneur, N.Y.

Trapp was transported to Harbor Beach, Mich., a lakeshore town 125 miles northeast of Detroit, and taken to a hospital.

He was the only person aboard the two-seat Cessna on a flight to Eau Claire, Wis. The sheriff says Trapp wasn't wearing a life jacket and treaded water the entire time.
