A man from Minnesota is extremely lucky to be alive today after crash-landing his airplane. After the crash, he recorded every moment on his cellphone as evidence of his experience. Minnesota mining executive Matt Lehtinen was flying from Newfoundland to Quebec City on July 27 when his Cirrus SRR22 encountered engine trouble. He deployed the plane's built-in parachute just before the aircraft slammed into the mountainside. After five hours, he was rescued by a chopper that pulled him to safety.
He was extremely lucky not to be severely injured in the crash. He was able to think clearly and grab supplies from his plane while staying safe in the woods.
