ORIGINAL STORY: Authorities investigating sea plane crash north of West Bloomfield Township

The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration are investigating with the Oakland County Sheriff's Office after a sea plane crashed while attempting to land at about 5 p.m.

"It was the scariest thing I've ever seen in my whole entire life," said Heather Oblak. 

The pilot and several boaters were injured, but are expected to be OK.

"I can't believe that there were no serious injuries," Oblak said. "I have lived here since 1973 and that is the first time I have ever seen anything like that happen."

The investigation is ongoing.
