MASON, Ohio (AP) - A possible plane crash reported near an Ohio interstate turned out to be only a prop on the grounds of a water park.
Media outlets report a passing motorist on I-71 north of Cincinnati thought it was a downed plane and alerted authorities late Wednesday morning. Fire and emergency crews were dispatched to the scene.
Spokesman Derek Blevins at The Beach water park in Mason tells WHIO radio the decorative prop has been on the property since May and was never an issue before. But he says it may be more visible from the interstate because falling leaves have reduced the amount of tree cover.
