VIDEO: One person is dead, and another is critically injured after a float plane crash on Lake Sammamish. The Bellevue Fire Department reported the crash at 11:11 a.m. on Friday. Several boaters watched the plane struggle to take off before it ultimately crashed. “The plane was taking off and then it made a sputter, the engine wasn’t getting up to speed and then it kind of hit a nosedive so then it went up, came down, nosedived, and flipped over,” said Janelle Shuey. Boaters on the lake who watched it happen raced out to the wreckage to help the two men inside. Shuey came home to her neighbors performing CPR on one of the men recovered from the crashed aircraft. “They started CPR, I think out on the boat in the lake and then continued the CPR as they brought the boat in and got him on the dock, they continued CPR,” said Shuey.
