Marine Rescue Crews Activated To Plane Crash On Coila Lake

Marine Rescue NSW crews from Tuross Moruya and Batemans Bay were activated this afternoon to a seaplane accident on Coila Lake.

The seaplane was reported to have flipped over on the lake, with a request for assistance being received by Marine Rescue NSW just after 1pm.

Rescue Water Craft Tuross 11 and Tuross 13, as well as Rigid Hulled Inflatable Tuross 12 were activated, with Batemans Bay 21 also asked to assist.

A short time ago Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter 23 plucked two passengers from the water near the seaplane, taking them to nearby Moruya Hospital.

The Marine Rescue NSW crews have now been stood down. Roads and Maritime Services are attending to the crashed plane and any pollution threat.
