The pilot of a Cessna 150J walked away with minor cuts and bruises Thursday after setting his plane down in an emergency landing in very shallow water off Seal Beach. "The guy did such a good job that I would be hesitant to call it a crash," said Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, which investigates airplane incidents. The pilot's name was not released. Gregor said the pilot declared an undisclosed emergency about 4 p.m. while towing an advertising banner along the shore near Surfside.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA are investigating the cause of the crash, Gregor said.
