One person is in critical condition and two others dead after a frightening single-engine plane crash in Detroit. A 17-year-old is the sole survivor in the accident that killed his 54-year-old father Greg Boaz and his stepmother, 48-year-old Julie.
The plane was coming from Arkansas and attempted to land at the Detroit City Airport but had low fuel and a landing gear problem, according to WXYZ. Instead, the plane crashed in a Detroit neighborhood, and bystanders sprang into action, helping the 17-year-old escape from the burning wreckage. Cordell Owens was one of the heroes of the day, using an axe to break a hole in the plane, enabling the teen to roll out.
Both the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
