Small Plane Ditches in the Sea off Gran Canaria

Two passengers survived serious injury when the small plane they were traveling in ditched into the sea off the northern coast of Gran Canaria on January 19.

The plane came down about 20 meters off the coast, and both people were able to get themselves to safety on shore. Authorities worked at the scene to recover the wreckage.

This video captured from a rescue helicopter shows the plane in the water. Photos showed the plane winched on to the shore. The aircraft appeared largely undamaged, except for a broken propeller. Credit: GES/1-1-2 Canarias via Storyful
