Local website sonline.hu reports that it was a police helicopter, and later published a video showing a helicopter spinning out of control before plunging into the water and sinking.
A sailing competition was being held near the accident site, and organisers of the event rescued the helicopter passengers.
The National Police said the helicopter was carrying out an exercise when it plunged into the lake about 300 metres from the shore. A boat nearby rescued the two-man crew.
The police said no one was severely injured in the accident, and the circumstances are now the subject of an investigation.
