Police are trying to determine why a small plane landed in a marshy area along the San Francisco Bay near East Palo Alto earlier Friday afternoon, Sept. 16.
The plane, which came down at about 2:45 p.m., is sitting upright on a spit of land in a marshy area south of the Ravenswood Open Space Preserve, according to East Palo Alto police Sgt. Angel Sanchez.
A California Highway Patrol helicopter has landed next to the plan, which Sanchez said appears to hold two people who seem to have escaped injury.
Emergency vehicles are attempting to reach the plane, but the wild nature of the coastline in that area is hindering efforts.
