HAYDEN LAKE, Idaho -- Two people escaped injury when a float plane crashed into Hayden Lake on Thursday morning.
The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office said a flying instructor and a student were aboard the single-engine plane, and they were immediately rescued by fishermen on the lake.
The sheriff's office said the plane flipped while trying to land on the surface of the lake after the occupants forgot to pull up the aircraft's wheels.
The student pilot and owner of the plane was Michael Bell, 61, of Spokane. The instructor was identified as 62-year-old Michael Kinkaid of Coeur d'Alene.
