BREAKING: plane makes emergency landing off Ocean City beach
OCEAN CITY, Md. – A pilot is lucky to be alive after his plane went down along the ocean city shoreline earlier this evening.
This is footage from Julie Ball who is visiting from New York.
Although she didn’t get the crash, she did get the aftermath.
What you’re looking at is a small plane that slammed into shallow water near 21st street around 6:19 PM Tuesday evening.
The Ocean City Police Department says there were no injuries, onlookers report seeing a man swim from the plane to safety.
Investigators say it’s too early to rule on a cause but for now at least they believe it could be due to a mechanical issue.
The Maryland State Police are handling the investigation.
