CANTON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a pilot has survived crash
landing his single-engine aircraft in a north Georgia lake.

Cherokee County Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Jay Baker said
46-year-old Alan Ray Jordan of Orlando, Fla., called 911 about 1
p.m. Wednesday to say he had just crashed into Lake Arrowhead in Canton, Ga.

Baker said a fisherman used his boat to rescue Jordan
from the sinking Diamond DA40.

Baker said Jordan emerged with "not a single scratch on him"
and only wet feet. Jordan was flying from Calhoun, Ga., to
Lawrenceville, Ga.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said Jordan reported a loss of engine power just before he crashed into the lake.

The crash is under investigation.
