Three people were rescued from a plane that went down east of Bimini Thursday, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

It said a fishing vessel picked up the survivors about 20 miles east of Bimini. Bahamian authorities then took them to Cat Cay, the Coast Guard said.

The Coast Guard later released aerial video of the downed aircraft.

It's unclear where the aircraft originated.
