Pilot, 2 Passengers Survive Emergency Landing On Long Island Lawn

VALLEY STREAM, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Three people survived an emergency landing Sunday on Long Island.

The plane landed on the front lawn of a home in Valley Stream.

A pilot and two passengers were on board the Cessna 172 aircraft when it went down shortly after 10 p.m. on Clarendon Road.

The plane came to a stop nose-down, tangled in power lines, which left the neighborhood in the dark.

A plane that crashed into power lines last night in a Valley Stream neighborhood has been taken down from the wires and now sits on a front lawn. Police say 3 people were inside the plane but made it out on their own. More: https://t.co/rOw6fKWEVM pic.twitter.com/njmxbC7EJj
