Kemah Fire Department

KFD has had an eventful day today. A plane crashed in Clear Lake earlier today we responded to in Marine 1. This evening Clear Lake Shores Police asked if Kemah Fire could respond and assist them in scene safety to ensure nobody got hurt and suppress any fires should one happen while removing an aircraft from the water. We gladly accepted the task working with police and happy to say no injuries trying to remove an aircraft from water. Oh and we got a little time using the Jaws Of Life to help make the plane fit on a tow truck! -Kemah Fire Department

SEABROOK, Texas — A pilot walked away uninjured Monday after his plane crashed in Clear Lake.

According to the League City Police Department, there was a report of a Progressive Aerodyne SeaRey that went down in Clear Lake, just north of Waterford Oak Lane, at about 5:30 p.m.

The plane landed upside down in the water.

The pilot was able to release his safety belt and swim out of the aircraft.

He told rescuers that he had originally landed on the water and was attempting to take off again when a wave struck his aircraft, causing the plane to go nose down into the water. 

The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating. The Coast Guard, along with the Federal Aviation Administration, helped to remove the aircraft.
