One Dead After Small Plane Crashes in Wellington

One person is dead after a small plane crashed into a lake by the Wellington dog park in the 2900 block of Greenbriar Blvd.

The Palm Beach County Fire Rescue reportedly found the pilot dead inside the cockpit of what is being described as an "experimental plane."

The plane went down about one mile from the Wellington Aero Club, a private airpark community.

Crews were called in around 12:55 p.m. Monday afternoon after several reports of a small plane crashing near Greenbriar Boulevard came in.

According to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue spokesman Capt. Albert Borroto, the plane was a single-engine craft.

When rescue crews arrived on the scene, they found the plane partially submerged in the water.
