A small plane has made an emergency landing on a sandbar in Massachusetts.

The pilot told state police that he was forced to land his plane on a sandbar in the Quabbin Reservoir in New Salem on Tuesday afternoon due to mechanical issues.

Officials say 42-year-old Guilluame De Ramel of Newport  was the only person on the plane, and was not hurt. The plane remained intact.

It was not immediately clear where the plane departed from or where it was headed to.

An investigation is ongoing.
