PHOTOS: No one hurt as plane crash lands in golf course pond

A small-plane pilot walked away uninjured after crash-landing their plane into a water hazard at Prestonwood Country Club, near Dallas.

According to the Associated Press, the pilot reported engine troubles while traveling to Addison Airport. The pilot intended to land on a fairway of the course, but missed, landing instead in a water hazard off the third hole. However, the still-unidentified pilot was able to get out of the plane and swim to land before the aircraft sank Monday night.

Federal Aviation Administration officials have put down boons to catch any fuel that may have leaked out into the water hazard and will try to extract the plane on Tuesday.
