IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - Law enforcement officials in eastern Idaho say two men survived a plane crash on the South Fork of the Snake River.

According to Bonneville County Sheriff’s office, a two-person Husky Aviator plane struck a wire strung across the river around 5 p.m. on Thursday. The plane flipped upside down and then landed in the water.

However, officials say the two adult men in the plane were able to escape and get out of the river unharmed. The two were able to call for help after walking a little more than a mile.

The sheriff’s office did not immediately have the names of the two men in the plane.

As of Thursday evening, the plane was still in the river.
