Incident occurred September 11, 2017 in Cathcart, Snohomish County, Washington

SNOHOMISH, WA - Firefighters in Snohomish County were responding Monday afternoon to a report of a plane crash, although the aircraft might have been a paraglider. The plane was down near the city of Snohomish along the 14900 block of Connelly Road. That location is near a bend in the Snohomish River just a short distance east of SR 9.

The pilot of the craft had reportedly made it out the crash uninjured, and fire crews were leaving the scene around 4:30 p.m. Monday.

Firefighters were accessing the scene via the Heirman Wildlife Prserve, which is at 14913 Connelly Road, and from the other side of the river along Short School Road.

A fisherman at the scene told firefighters that he "watched it go down," and another fisherman had responded to the scene with a boat. Firefighters did not report any sign of a pilot.
