MILTON, Vt. (AP) - Two men aboard a small plane that landed on a frozen Lake Champlain in Vermont are doing OK after they walked to shore and were greeted by emergency crews.

Milton Fire and Rescue Chief Don Turner tells the Burlington Free Press (https://bfpne.ws/1CH1izY ) that the plane came to rest Saturday afternoon about three-quarters of a mile offshore at Milton. Turner says the men were cold and wet when they arrived on shore but appeared to be fine. They were treated in a waiting ambulance and taken from the scene.

However, witnesses say the ice broke and the plane began to sink.

Turner says about 30 gallons of fuel remained on the two-seater plane and emergency workers were contacted.
