A small plane crashed Monday off the shore of West Seattle.
The Seattle Fire Department said there were no injuries and the plane occupants, two men, made it safely to shore.
U.S. Coast Guard officials and Seattle Fire Department officials responded to the scene just before 1 p.m. Monday where the Cessna 172 crashed.
Divers tied lines to the plane to keep it from slipping further into the water.

The Department of Ecology said there were no oil leaks in Puget Sound and the National Transportation Safety Board said they plan to remove the aircraft as soon as possible.
The NTSB will bring in a barge with a crane to pull the plane out of the water.
One neighbor saw the plane coming in from Kitsap. He said it made a turn and stayed parallel to the shoreline before going into the water near the shore. He said it "landed perfectly" and came to rest.
Another neighbor said he didn't hear any engine sounds as the plane went into the water, indicating the possibility of a mechanical issue.
The crash was near the 5900 block of Beach Drive SW.
