MIAMI (CBSMiami) –A plane was forced to land in the Everglades Wednesday.
Chopper4 was over the scene in West Broward where a plane was spotted, fully intact about 20 minutes after the plane made the emergency landing.
Two people were spotted unharmed and standing by the plane – a Piper PA28.
Around 12:20 p.m., rescue crews arrived and airlifted the men to safety.
Federal Aviation Administration officials say the student and instructor pilot were returning from a flight when they encountered trouble with the engine. That’s when the instructor found a place to land safely – a levy near U.S. Highway 27.
The FAA is investigating what went wrong with the plane.
