Float plane flips in lake

A float plane overturned Wednesday during a hard landing on Comox Lake on Vancouver Island.

Witnesses say the small plane skipped hard off the water and flipped upside down.

"It bounced off the water, hit again and then after it hit it took a nosedive and flipped over," witness Mike Slota told CTV.

The pilot scrambled out of the aircraft and appeared to be uninjured.

Boaters rushed over to help, and firefighters say the aircraft did not appear to be leaking fuel.

Transport Canada is expected to investigate.
