The kid was dealt with on the shoreline before being transported to Rady Children’s Hospital.

“When you hit the water, its as though the arrival apparatus hit a block divider, then the plane will pitch forward,” says Griscom. “The windshield will promptly get a face loaded with sea and the pilot will probably get to be oblivious rapidly and the plane sinks and he suffocates.”
Sway Griscom says the FAA and NTSB will now be examining why the motor quit and they will be investigating the pilot, including his direct the day preceding the flight.
“They will likewise discover the amount of rest the pilot had the day preceding and whether he was out celebrating, whatever it may be,” says Griscom. “They will investigate those components.”
