ORLANDO, Fla. – A Cessna twin-engine airplane went off a runway and ended up in a water-filled ditch Monday morning at Orlando Executive Airport. 

No one was injured in the incident, which was reported around 8:15 a.m. at 365 Rickenbacker Drive.

The plane was carrying four people, including the pilot, when it lost power and crashed into the drainage ditch, officials said.

The nose of the plane ended up in the water.

Orlando fire officials said a hazmat team contained a fuel leak, preventing any runoff.

The runway will be closed until the plane is towed away.
