From the Isanti County Sheriff's Office:

A helicopter from LifeLink was in the area and flew over the site and provided real-time

information to first responders. Information received from the helicopter team was that the

plane was upright and it appeared that an adult male and female were exiting the aircraft.


No fire was noted. The plane is described as an ultralight Cessna. Isanti County Deputies arrived on the scene and me with the pilot, a 40-year-old male from Anoka County. He advised that he had just left the airport in Cambridge when he experienced engine problems. The pilot had attempted to turn to return to the airport when he lost power. He looked for an alternative landing zone. He observed a corn field and decided to attempt to land there. He was able to land the plane there. Neither he, nor his 18-year-old female passenger, believed to be his daughter also from Anoka County, were injured.


The Isanti County Sheriff’s Office is working with the FAA and the NTSB to investigate this

incident.
