Small plane crashes into the water off Huntington Beach

A small plane crashed into the water just meters behind the surf in front of beachgoers in Huntington Beach on Friday afternoon.

video of the incident posted online shows the plane at about 1:30 p.m. towing a banner and then rapidly descending until splashing into the water a few meters from the sand.

The crash happened south of Beach Boulevard, said Jennifer Carey, a spokeswoman for Huntington Beach.

One person was removed from the plane, Carey said. Her condition wasn’t immediately known, but Carey said no injuries were reported.

It was not immediately known if anyone else was on board the aircraft.

The investigation into the accident is being overseen by the California Department of Parks and Recreation because the crash occurred under their jurisdiction, Carey said.

Huntington Beach police and firefighters were at the scene cordoning off the area near the crash site, she said. However, the rest of the beach remains open to the public.
