In Minnesota, firefighters rescued a pilot of a light aircraft, which flew into power lines and hung upside down. The aircraft did not fall to the ground, because it caught on the wires of one of the wheels of the chassis. This was reported by ABC with reference to the Scott County Sheriff’s office.

The pilot turned out to be a 65-year-old local resident, he called the rescuers by dialing 911. The man was removed from the plane only after a power outage on the power lines.

The cause of the crash is unknown, the Federal Aviation Administration has initiated an investigation into the incident. The police noted that the pilot was not injured, but the situation could have been “much worse” and the man was lucky.
