Four people survived a small plane crash in the Cook Inlet on Sunday night.
Karis Johannes, a 48-year-old from Wasilla, and Palmer residents Jill and Douglas Warner, ages 56 and 54, were flying with pilot Scott Johannes, 48, when the plane crashed into the water east of Kalgin Island, Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said.
Jim LaBelle, the Alaska chief of the National Transportation Safety Board, said there was a reported loss of engine power on the Cessna 185.
The pilot landed in rough water. LaBelle said the plane’s floats were ripped off.
