Small Plane Makes Emergency Landing On Golf Course In Glenview

GLENVIEW, Ill. (CBS) -- A small plane made an emergency landing on a golf course in Glenview Sunday afternoon, officials said.

"So we were on (Hole) 13 ready to tee off when this plane comes hovering over our head – just missed the tree; obviously the engine was off. Just missed the tree and then did a nice landing. Nobody was injured. So I called it in right away," said golfer Dave Cederberg. "It was pretty scary though – just flew right over our heads."

The emergency landing was prompted by an undetermined mechanical issue, officials said.

The general manager of The Glen Club said she'd heard the plane took off from Chicago Executive Airport in Wheeling, and the pilot was a training student who was supposed to go back to the airport. No golfers were on Hole 13 when the plane landed there, she told CBS 2's Steven Graves.

No one was not injured and the plane was not damaged. A golf shop worker said the fire department responded to the plane on golf carts.
