A local couple suffered no injuries Friday afternoon when their small airplane crash landed in the Catawba River at S.C. 9.
Fort Lawn resident John Sedberry and his wife, Bobbie, had taken off from the Lancaster County Airport in a one-engine Glasair airplane. They were flying to Port St. Lucie, Fla.
Millard Lipsey and two of his friends were fishing in a boat on the river when they saw the plane fly over the river and gradually start to descend.
“We thought it was going to land, but it kept bouncing until it started sinking,” he said.
