Transcript for Good Samaritans Rescue Passenger, Pilot From Plane Wreckage
We return to that deadly small plane crash that came down in a parking lot, the scene all caught on tape with good samaritans quickly racing to pull the pilot and passenger from the wreckage. ABC's Reena ninan has the story. Reporter: This morning chilling video taken moments after a small plane came crashing down in a San Diego parking lot. Two women trapped inside. I'm full throttle. I'm going down. Reporter: Air traffic control audio capturing the moments just before disaster. Oh, my god. I'm not getting any altitude here. Reporter: The badly injured women were quickly dragged from the flailing wreckage by good samaritans. Jerry helped pull out the pilot. I said, we've got to get you out of here and she said, well, my leg is broken. It's broken bad. I said, I know that. We have to get you out of here. Reporter: The plane failed to land at a nearby airfield and clipped the top of this target store before crashing into a fireball on the blacktop seen in this footage. The aircraft's wheel ripped from the fuselage. All I saw was a big piece of white metal flying into the sky. Reporter: The 52-year-old pilot and her 80-year-old passenger were transported to a local hospital where that passenger later died. At least one good samaritan also received minor injuries. This is at least the fourth small plane crash in just the past two weeks. One on a Nevada highway and two more in Florida. This one in Venice beach killing two people. Eyewitnesses are praising the pilot for landing in an area where there were no cars or people and to one on the ground was injured. That pilot is actually expected to survive. Thank goodness for that. Okay, Reena, thanks very much.
