Quick action by dozens of small boats helped rescue five people from a float plane that flipped on landing in Tofino's harbour.

The Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Victoria says the small plane may have clipped a boat before nosing into the water, catching a wing and going over late yesterday afternoon.

Boaters helped the pilot and four passengers safely escape and had ferried them to shore by the time the coast guard lifeboat Cape Ann reached the scene.

No one was seriously hurt.
