The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the May 2 crash landing of a small airplane on the Catawba River.
Fort Lawn resident John Sedberry was piloting the Glasair plane that was en route to Florida. His wife and their two dogs were traveling with him. No one was hurt in the crash.
Sedberry told authorities the engine shut off, forcing the plane to crash land on the river, just moments after take off from nearby Lancaster County Airport.
A Lancaster County Sheriff's Office report says the plane was towed to a nearby dock by someone's personal boat.
