The pilot of a small plane suffered only minor injuries after his small plane apparently lost power after take-off at the San Rafael Airport on Tuesday morning, landing in an isolated, marshy area, authorities said.

The man was walking to McInnis Parkway to meet police and firefighters, a police spokeswoman said.

"He (the pilot) may have minor injuries, but he was talking" to responders, said San Rafael police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher.

Rohrbacher said the plane was "way out in the marshland. The pilot got out on his own and is walking to McInnis Parkway to meet the responding unit."

The Marin County Sheriff's Office was handling the case, Rohrbacher said. This story will be updated.
