A small aircraft makes an emergency landing on Crescent Beach.
The general-aviation plane landed on the sand at around 12:30 Sunday afternoon.
The two people on board were safe and no one on the beach was injured. The plane was reportedly having engine trouble and died mid-air. Pilot Dan Holiday spoke with our news partner Channel 4 and he said switching fuel tanks could have solved the problem but had no time to do it.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating and the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene.
