Light plane emergency lands in the sea; 2 injured

Two people were injured when a light aircraft made an emergency landing in the sea near Tel Aviv.

The incident occurred as the aircraft was coming in to land at Sde Dov airport. The two casualties were the only people on board at the time.

For reasons unknown at this point, the pilot somehow lost control of the plane and was forced to land in the sea.

A distress call was made to Sde Dov airport as the pilot attempted to come in for an emergency landing, but he was unable to regain control and crash-landed in the water.

Eyewitnesses say the pair were still conscious as they were brought to dry land, but their precise conditions have not yet been confirmed.

Details to follow.
