This is exactly what happened.  The plane ran out of fuel but they were able to ditch the Betty Bomber in very shallow water.  There was only one person hurt and knocked unconscious and that was the Olympic swimmer.  The Japanese army was alerted to seek out and kill the surrender delegation so the delegation had to sneak back to Tokyo to deliver the orders back to the Emperor.  The mission was obviously successful.
