The pilot stated he began a left descending turn over a swamp, and the airplane developed a sink rate which he could not arrest with power. A witness who lives next to the swamp reported the airplane was circling the swamp and was "exceedingly low." The witness saw the left wing of the airplane clip some tall brush and cartwheel.
