A seaplane carrying two people capsized in Richardson Bay near Sausalito on Friday night after it was hit by a wave while attempting to take off from the water, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
The man and woman aboard the plane were rescued unharmed by a good Samaritan vessel, the Elixir, and the Sausalito Police Department, the Coast Guard said.
Pollution response crews with the Coast Guard were investigating a potential threat posed by the capsized plane.
Station Golden Gate launched a 25-foot response boat to assess the scene, and pollution responders from Sector San Francisco's incident management division were involved in an ongoing investigation.
