WONEWOC, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities used a row boat to save a pilot whose plane crashed in a swamp in southern Wisconsin.

Juneau County sheriff’s officials said 29-year-old Seth Pripps of Rockford Illinois was flying from Park Falls to St. Louis Monday, when he landed in Wonewoc to check his single-engine Cessna.

Then when he took off, he developed engine trouble, and the plane crashed in a swamp.

Pripps was not hurt, but he needed help getting out of his aircraft due to the high water in the swamp.

Rescuers from the Wonewoc Fire Department took a boat out to save him. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the incident.
