Two unhurt in Lake Goodwin plane crash

LAKE GOODWIN — Two people on board a small plane that crashed into the water in Lake Goodwin on Sunday escaped without injury, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The accident was reported at 4:21 p.m., said Lt. R.C. Rochon of the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. Both people were in the water for a short time before they were picked up by a nearby resident in a boat and taken to shore, he said. The pilot was a 51-year-old Seattle man, Rochon said. No information was released about the passenger.

Both were checked by medics from the Marysville Fire Department and found to be shaken up, wet and cold but unhurt.

The plane was a 2007 Searey float plane with a boat hull, Rochon said.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Marine Services Unit is working with state and federal agencies to investigate the cause of the accident and determine if there was any environmental damage, Rochon said.
