A Cessna-180 aircraft had to make an emergency landing in Lake George Monday afternoon as campers at the Ojibway Campground looked on.
A camper at the park who did not want to be identified told SaultOnline.com that he witnessed the ordeal around 3:30pm Monday.
“I heard the plane’s engine sputter and back-fire”
Moments later the small plane carrying two people landed safely in Lake George.
After observing the plane out in the lake for sometime the camper notified the coast guard .
The float plane had allegedly run short on gas enroute to the Sault Ste. Marie Airport.
The plane was towed to the Canadian shores at Ojibway Park. No one was hurt in the ordeal.
After refueling on the Ojibway Campground beach, located about 20 minutes east of Sault Ste. Marie on Highway 17B, the plane made lift-off and did a fly by for SaultOnline cameras on its way to the Sault Airport.
