Both the pilot and passenger did not suffer any injuries in the crash. According to reports, 34-year-old David Lesh took his Beechcraft Bonanza plane out to the California coast with his friend, Kayla, for a mid-air photo shoot. Unexpectedly, the plane's engine failed while they were 3,400 feet in the air.
