A small plane crashed in the town of Mukwa in Waupaca County, Wisconsin, on November 6th.
The plane went down on Faskell Road, near the runway of a private airport Poppy’s Flying Acres.
The pilot, who was the only one aboard, was injured in the accident and was taken to a hospital in New London.
Sgt. Kevin Studzinski of the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office said the neighbors had pulled the pilot out of the aircraft. “The plane is considered a total loss, but that’s not what’s important… Due to their heroic actions the pilot is still alive today,” he said.
