The pilot of a small plane was forced to land in the Pacific Ocean after running out of fuel while flying from California to Hawaii on Friday.

The U.S. Coast Guard rescued the 65-year-old pilot, whose name was not released. The pilot was taken to a hospital, and his condition was unknown, The Associated Press reported.

The pilot called for help after noticing his twin-engine Cessna was low on fuel. The Coast Guard sent a plane to fly alongside him and dispatched a vessel, known as a cutter, to the area. The waiting Coast Guard rescued him when he splashed down, AP reported.
