Pilot plucked out of Lake Huron 17 hours after crash

DETROIT (Reuters) - A pilot whose small plane went down over Lake Huron was rescued on Wednesday after spending 17 hours in the water without a life preserver, officials said.

Michael Trapp, 42, was enroute from his home in Gouverneur, New York to Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin when he was forced to ditch his single-engine Cessna 150 in the lake off Huron County, Michigan around dinner time Tuesday, according to the local sheriff's department.

He was found, 17 hours later, by a passing fishing boat, which plucked him out of the water.

Trapp was then transported to the hospital and reported to be in good condition, the sheriff said.
