Pilot survives small plane crash into Kenosha County lake

KENOSHA COUNTY (WKOW) — A small plane crashed into a lake in Kenosha County Monday evening and the pilot survived.

It happened at Camp Lake, just north of the Illinois border.

It’s not clear exactly what happened because the sheriff says the pilot didn’t immediately call authorities. The pilot reportedly got out of the the plane, swam to shore and then hitchhiked home to Antioch, Illinois.

A woman walking her dog spotted the plane and called 911.

The Kenosha County Sheriff says the man wasn’t hurt.

The Federal Aviation Administration will likely be there to investigate on Tuesday.
