PAHOKEE, Fla. (AP) -- A man has died after a small plane crashed into Lake Okeechobee in South Florida.

The Palm Beach Post reports that authorities responded to call about a possible boating accident around 8 a.m. Saturday. When they arrived on scene they found what appeared to be an amateur, experimental plane.

Rescue divers found the victim in the water around 9:30 a.m. He was a white male between 50 and 60-years-old, police said.

CBS Miami reports that the plane crashed about 200 yards from the Pahokee Marina. Authorities with the FAA and NTSB are investigating what led to the accident.
