Reports indicated two people were onboard.  Both people were in the water a short period of time before being picked up by a resident and taken to shore.  Both people were checked by medical personnel from the Marysville Fire District and found to be shaken up, cold and wet, but with no injuries, according to Lt.

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office Marine Services Unit is working with the FAA, Washington Department of Ecology, and Washington Fish and Wildlife to investigate the cause and mitigate any potential environment issues.

The pilot is a 51-year-old male, from the Seattle, area. The aircraft involved is described as a "2007 Searey" floatplane with a boat hull.
