Pilot survives plane crash down south

A tragedy was averted today in what some may say was a miracle no one was killed. A plane went down in the Cowpen area in Stann Creek at eight a.m. on Sunday. The pilot, Frank Hiebert was spraying a banana plantation in what should have been a routine flight. However, a yellow indicator light came on and the crop duster started to experience mechanical failure. Hiebert began to descend from his altitude, but the wing was apparently damaged and he could control the plane no longer. The plane crashed face down in the banana plantation with the wheels up in the air. Hiebert did not only survive, he walked away from the accident uninjured.
