Police video shows dramatic rescue after plane crash off Tampa

Good News Notes:

A dramatic rescue went down on Monday morning off the coast of Florida and it was caught on police video.

According to a Facebook post from the Tampa Police Department, a small plane crashed into the water near Davis Island soon after taking off from Peter O. Knight Airport.

Aviation pilots captured the moment two people were plucked from Hillsborough Bay a little after 10 a.m.

The pilot and passenger were flying from Gainesville to Tampa when they experienced engine trouble, the agency said.

Footage shows one of the people, wearing a yellow life vest and cap, looking exhausted, grabbing an officer’s hand and trying to haul himself onto a police boat. Eventually, he makes his way onto the watercraft and collapses on his belly.
