Today was an extremely lucky day for the pilot and passenger of the small plane that went down in a central Florida pasture.

According to the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office two people were hurt after a small plane crashed Thursday morning in Glades County.

The sheriff’s office said they received a 911 transfer just after 11 a.m. from the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office from a pilot who made an emergency crash landing.

The pilot said he thought his location was somewhere in Okeechobee County between State Road 78 and Highway 70 West.

After searching the area, Okeechobee County officials found the plane in a cow pasture about 1,500 feet off of State Road 70 in Glades County.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
