PINEVIEW RESERVOIR, Utah (ABC4) — A plane was recovered from Pineview Reservoir Saturday after crashing and becoming partially submerged in the water, according to the Weber County Sheriff’s Office.

A Cessna 185 was recovered from the ice after crashing around in the Spring Creek Inlet in Pineview Reservoir.

Authorities responded to the crash around 1 p.m. Friday. The pilot and passenger safely escaped the plane and swam up onto the ice “before the cockpit was fully submerged in water,” authorities say.
