According to authorities, a small plane that was carrying seven people who were going skydiving suffered from an engine malfunction. This malfunction necessitated an emergency landing in a backyard in upstate New York.
Reports say that the plane landed in a yard behind a house. The seven people on board the plane suffered from minor injuries. This incident occurred in Gardiner.
The plane was operated by a company called Skydive the Ranch. People from the company have not commented on the incident. According to the fire chief in the area, the pilot tried to return to the airport but wasn’t able to do so.
Police are still looking into the incident. At this time, this is all that is know about the accident.
If you’ve been seriously injured in an accident that was caused by someone else acting negligently or recklessly, you could seek compensation for your injuries. If proper safety measures were not being taken by a company and that lead to your injuries, you could seek recovery for things like medical bills.
