Small Plane Crashes Into Shallow Waters

A single-engine plane crashed into shallow waters 10 miles away from the Homestead Airport early Friday morning, but the three people aboard weren't injured, authorities said. Pilot Deavin Beattie and co-pilot Jeff Steinberg and passenger Dr. Todd Schwartz said they had taken their friend's plane and were going to have lunch in Key West when they lost power. They went through the steps to refire the engine, but at 6,000 feet they started to glide at 1,000 feet per minute.
