Pilot Films Himself Awaiting Rescue After Plane Crash

A man and a woman miraculously escaped injury after their plane crashed into the sea in Half Moon Bay, off the California coast, on Tuesday, August 20. The pilot, David Lesh, shot dramatic video of their rescue from the water.

A Coast Guard helicopter responded to the scene after being contacted by passengers on a second plane who witnessed the crash.

“The second pilot’s quick response to report the downed plane and remain on scene greatly aided the Coast Guard’s prompt response and ability to save two lives,” said Lt Cmdr Joshua Murphy, the pilot of the rescue chopper.

Lesh told ABC 7: “It skipped along the water a few times. There was like no impact. We were totally fine.”
