SUNRIVER, OR -- A Sunriver man was killed when the float-plane he was piloting crashed into the Deschutes River, just south of the Sunriver airport, Saturday morning. The small plane went down soon after taking off, at about 10:40 a.m. It flipped onto its top and emergency crews found it partially submerged.


Sunriver Fire rescued the passenger, 69-year-old Johannes Noordwijk, also of Sunriver, along with four others who swam out to help. Noordwijk was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

 

Deschutes County Search and Rescue divers later recovered the body of the pilot, 63-year-old Kevin Padrick. The NTSB is investigating the crash.
