An airplane crashed in the sea off Bald Head Island on Friday.
It happened around 8:30 a.m. when the seaplane was trying to take off.
The US Coast Guard said the plane hit a wave while taking off around the mouth of the Cape Fear River. The wave capsized the airplane.
Two people were on the plane when it crashed. A nearby boat picked up the pilot and the passenger and took them back to shore.
The two people did not sustain any serious injuries.
