Breaking news update: Pilot, 3 passengers survive when plane crashes in Lake Steinhagen

JASPER COUNTY- By Scott Lawrence

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office has found the wreckage of a plane that crashed in Lake Steinhagen and it has released the name of the people on board. All survived. The crew includes the pilot, Tristan Dorien, and passengers Benjamin Griffin, William O'Neal and Erica Gore. All are in their late 20's or early 30's.

A pilot and three passengers who are with a film crew survived by holding onto a camera case and swimming to shore when their plane crashed in Lake Steinhagen after running low on fuel early Tuesday morning, according to information provided to KFDM News by Jasper County Sheriff Mitchel Newman.

Watch KFDM News and stay with for updates and reaction.

During a live telephone interview during The Morning Show, Newman told Dan Gresham and Melissa Daigle a film crew was flying from California to New Orleans and realized they were low on fuel.

The pilot was going to try to land to refuel but instead had to put the A-36 Bonanza plane down in Lake Steinhagen at about 3 a.m.

The sheriff says the pilot and three passengers held onto a camera case and swam to shore. It took about one hour.

The pilot was taken by ambulance to CHRISTUS Hospital in Jasper for treatment of injuries the sheriff calls non-life threatening.

The three passengers weren't hurt and were taken to a hotel near the hospital to recover.

The Sheriff's Office and other first responders found the wreckage of the plane at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in Lake Steinhagen.

The NTSB will investigate the crash.
