A pilot appears to be okay after his Cessna float plane ran into trouble near Halifax Stanfield International Airport.
Emergency crews were called out to Turf Lake just before 1 p.m. Tuesday.
Kevin Dean, a district fire chief with the Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency, tells HalifaxToday.ca the pilot managed to land on the lake.
"The plane is upright, it's on the pontoons," he said. "We had to send a boat over to get him. It's on a little island in the middle of the lake. It looks like it's swampy."
"The pilot is fine. We brought him over and he's here with RCMP, so everything is good."
An airport spokesperson says the incident hasn't affected any flights.
