A plane crashed into Lake Travis Saturday and all three passengers walked away with no injuries.

According to KXAN, the plane took off from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and crashed shortly after 4 pm. near Bob Wentz Park.

Austin-Travis County EMS said a pilot and two passengers, were able to exit the plane and only one person had minor injuries.

Witnesses reported hearing the plane engine sputter before the plane crashed.

"People were just in shock, we just couldn't believe what we were watching," said Geoff Grunska.

Grunska had just arrived at Lake Travis for the holiday weekend.

He said he watched the plane hit the water.

"He hit it flat, but the force of the plane, it flipped it right over. Within a matter of 45 seconds that plane was completely submerged."

The FAA says they will investigate the crash.
