The deputies, who were patrolling the lake on personal watercraft at the time of the accident, responded immediately. When they arrived at the scene of the accident, the found good Samaritans helping the two men on board get out of the aircraft.

The occupants were identified as the owner of the airplane, Tyrone Finch, 54, from Tennessee, and 62-year-old Partick Jarman from Deerfield Township in Michigan.

Finch reportedly suffered slight injuries. Jarman was more seriously hurt. Both were transported to a local medical facility, and Jarman was later taken by helicopter to Grand Rapids, MI where he was listed in serious condition.
