GARBERVILLE (AP) - Authorities say the pilot killed in a small plane crash in Northern California was an emergency room doctor who was commuting to work from his home.

Humboldt County Sheriff's officials said the body of 59-year-old Douglas Todd Pleatman of Cameron Park was recovered from the aircraft after it went into the Eel River in Garberville Friday.

They said Pleatman was the chief emergency-room doctor at Jerold Phelps Community Hospital in Garberville, a community of about 900 residents along Highway 101. Once a month, he would commute from his home in El Dorado County to that hospital by airplane.
