A pilot and his three passengers survived a frightening crash last Thursday night in Wallkill, N.Y., according to the New York Post.
The four people were in a Cessna 172N when the aircraft lost power after it took off. The plane then lost altitude and crashed into the front lawn of a house in Ulster County, N.Y.
The plane was being flown by Robert Schmidt, 48, of Bay Shore, Long Island. Two of his passengers were stuck in the plane and had to be set free by rescuers.
Schmidt and passenger John Brienza were airlifted to Westchester Medical Center for treatment. Then Robert Kroll, 42, and Anrhiny Errera, 31, got medical treatment at St. Francis in Poughkeepsie.
