Utah Plane Crash Captured on Video by Survivor

UTAH (KTLA) — A passenger shot cell phone video while his single-engine airplane made a crash landing in Utah.

Jonathan Fielding was aboard the plane with his wife, their 7-month-old child, and his mother-in-law when the engine froze over and the pilot had to make an emergency landing.

The pilot found a field to set the aircraft down, but heavy snow on the ground caused the plane’s landing gear to buckle and the plane flipped over.

No one was seriously injured in the wreck.

Fielding credited the pilot with saving everyone on board.

His wife, Kara, said she would fly again despite the fact that this was her first venture in a plane.

Power lines and heavy traffic made landing on nearby roads extremely dangerous, according to the pilot.
