WAYNESVILLE, Ohio — Two people were rescued after a plane crashed into a Warren County lake Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators with Ohio State Highway Patrol said the engine of a small aircraft failed as it crossed Caesar Creek Lake. The pilot tried to set it down as close as it could to the bank. Though it flipped over on the water, both people inside were able to get out safely.

"I would have to give great thanks to my instructors, my support and my mentors along the path," pilot Ryan Pennington said. "As an instructor myself, I try to provide a good example to my students — always make good decisions, make quick decisions when things are going right and when things don't go as expected."

Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
