MIAMI BEACH, FL — A Cessna A185F Skywagon crash landed in waters off South Beach on Sunday, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. The incident happened just before noon. First responders took the pilot to a nearby hospital with non life-threatening injuries. 

"This morning, at approximately 11:42 a.m., our 9-1-1 center received a call reporting a plane down in channel of Government Cut at Port Miami," Erika Benitez of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue explained.

No one else was aboard the aircraft at the time of the crash, Benitez said, adding that first responders from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Fire Boat 73 responded along with the U.S. Coast Guard and a Miami-Dade Police Department Marine Unit.

Benitez said that the pilot had already made it out of the plane and was on a Good Samaritan's boat when rescuers arrived

"MDFR divers were deployed into the water to ensure there were no other possible patients inside the plane," Benitez said. "After a secondary search, divers confirmed that the only person was the single pilot."

"Once the Fireboat arrived to land, the patient was then transported by ground to a nearby hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries," Benitez added
