UPDATE: Two people rescued after their plane lands in the ocean

Two people were rescued on Sunday afternoon after their plane stalled and landed in the ocean.

It happened about three miles north west of Ragged Point.

The Coast Guard says they received a mayday call from the Cessna airplane around 3 p.m.

The plane was about three miles north of Ragged Point, and officials say a GPS locater device on the plane helped them find the aircraft quickly.

A Coast Guard helicopter from San Francisco rescued the two people on board while their plane was partially submerged in the water.

Many aircrafts from other agencies responded, along with rescue boats from Monterey and Morro Bay.

Officials say the two people were traveling to Canada and they both declined medical treatment.

They say the plane is now about a mile offshore.

They do not know what caused the plane to stall.
