Collier County, Fla.-The pilot of a small plane has been taken to the Hospital after his plane crashed into the water near the Fiddler's Creek Community.
The Collier County Sheriff's Office says 68-year-old David Rynders took off from the Naples Airport on his way to the Immokalee Airport in a single engine Sonex experimental plane.
After the loss of oil pressure caused the engine to fail, Rynders decided he would attempt to land at the Marco Island Airport. He then realized he would not make it that far and tried to make an Emergency landing at the Fiddler's Creek Golf Course, but just missed the course and ended up in the water.
Rynder was airlifted to the NCH hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
