LUDINGTON, Mich. (AP) -- A medical transport plane headed to the Mayo Clinic carrying five people crashed into Lake Michigan today and one person was rescued by a boater, officials said.

U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Nathaniel Parks said the plane went down shortly after 10 a.m. a few miles off the shore of Ludington, a resort town on Michigan's west coast. A boater in the lake rescued one passenger about two hours later, and the search for the other four was under way.
