GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Police in north Alabama say a pilot is unharmed after his small plane crashed in Lake Guntersville.

Guntersville police officer Ryan Bradford says the pilot was having engine trouble Saturday when he crash landed in the lake about 35 miles southeast of Huntsville.

Bradford says fishermen who witnessed the crash pulled the pilot from the water and took him to land. He says the pilot escaped uninjured and no one else was aboard the single-engine plane.

The name of the pilot was not immediately released.
