Two rescued from water after plane crashes in Volusia County

- Boaters rescued Chris and Vivienne Carlson after their seaplane crash-landed in Volusia County’s Lake Ashby.

The sheriff's office says the seaplane was coming in for a landing when it flipped over and crashed.

Much of the rescue was captured on video by the sheriff's office.

The couple were the only ones on the plane.

A boater saw what happened and called for help, then he sailed out and rescued them from the lake.

That dramatic moment was caught on his 911 call.

Deputies say they brought the couple to a Sanford hospital, where they were treated for injuries on their faces and heads.

The National Transportation Safety Board has taken over the investigation.
