Two people were rescued after their plane nosedived into the ocean off the coast of Hawaii. Drone footage captured the immediate aftermath of the scene off Hawaii's Makaha Beach after the crash, which took place on Monday 23 May.

The plane was bound for Honolulu International Airport, but experienced engine trouble which caused the crash, according to local reports.

Two lifeguards noticed the plane in the water, and immediately swam out to the aircraft. "Witnesses said they saw two people hanging on to the wings of the aircraft as it went under, so it looks like they were able to get out through the side windows, Shayne Enright, Emergency Medical Services spokesperson told local station Khon 2.

The pilot, a 56-year-old man, and the passenger, his 52-old wife, were both taken to hospital with minor injuries. "Both were stable, they did suffer some abrasions to the chest, likely from the seat belts, but very fortunately didn't suffer any major injuries", Enright continued.

A bystander brought all four – the two lifeguards who swam out, and the couple – back to the shore.
