I was traveling as one of 3 seaplanes( not 2) from Michigan to Maine, this was a halfway planned fuel stop of a 7 -8 our trip, the aircraft did not runout of fuel, infact when we disassembled the airplane yesterday we drained an hours worth of fuel from the aircraft, the airplane didnít crash it was a controlled forced landing very different scenerios,and the pilot did an amazing job of safely landing it saving his life along with his wife, this is a success story for general aviation, everything happened as it should by the textbook for the circumstance, the aircraft was a 4 seat Cessna 180 on Aerocet straight floats, meaning it has no retractable wheels in the floats. I know you may have limited info to write your article, you were given very incorrect information.
