WELLINGTON, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say one person has died after a small plane crashed into a South Florida Lake.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue officials say the single-engine aircraft was found partially submerged in a Wellington lake Monday afternoon. One person was dead inside the cockpit.
The Palm Beach Post reports (http://bit.ly/1gwXav4 ) that the Federal Aviation Administration identified the plane as a Sonex, a fixed-wing, amateur-built experimental aircraft. Only the pilot was on board the plane.
The pilot's name has not been released.
The plane went down near the private Wellington Aero Club and also close to a local dog park.
