A small plane crashed into waters in a Government Cut channel near the PortMiami late Sunday morning.

The FAA said the Cessna A185 seaplane "made a water landing and flipped over near the Miami Seaplane Base" around 11:45 a.m.

Mami-Dade Fire Rescue said the lone passenger got out and was on a boater's vessel when a Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Fireboat arrived. He was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries that weren't life threatening.
