An approximate 70 year-old male was hurt Thursday after his vintage plane crashed on a golf course in Venice California.
Just before 2:30 PM on March 5, 2015, Los Angeles and Santa Monica Firefighters responded to multiple 911 calls regarding an aircraft down at the 1200 block of Rose Avenue.
Firefighters arrived on-scene to find a single-engine aircraft that suffered a medium to high impact crash landing on the grass at Penmar Golf Course near Santa Monica airport.
The pilot and solo occupant was found conscious and breathing after Doctors who were playing golf assisted the patient from the wreckage.
Firefighter Paramedics rendered immediate medical aid to the patient on scene and provided further care while transporting him to a local hospital for his moderate injuries. Simultaneously additional firefighters set up a protection hose-line and ensured any leaking fuel would not erupt into flames.
Fortunately, no one else was injured.
