Being hit by the wing of a plane that crash-landed on top of you is probably one of the last things you'd expect to happen while enjoying a day at the beach. Had it not been for a beach-load of good Samaritans, Nicholas Baer may not have survived the ordeal.
In just the past few days, we've heard news around the world of helicopters falling out of the sky, and planes losing altitude and crashing. But today we have news of a plane crash right here in Genesee County.
You're less likely to get killed or injured in a plane than you are in a car. The difference is that with a minor problem in a car you can just pull over. Unfortunately, there's no shoulder in the sky.
