Ultralight ditches off Vancouver Island

An ultralight aircraft with two aboard has ditched in waters near Schooner Cove - that's north of Nanoose Bay on Vancouver Island. 

The pilot declared a mayday around 9:00 a.m. and brought the aircraft down for a water landing.

The pilot and his passenger have been rescued by the crew of a coast guard vessel out of French Creek.

An official at the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Victoria says the two have since been transferred to an ambulance.

No word yet on their conditions.
