2 Killed in Plane Crash; Bystander Pulls 3rd Victim From Wreckage

Two people are dead and a third person is recovering after being pulled from a crashed plane bound for Detroit Sunday, officials say.

Three people were on the small plane when it went down near Coleman A. Young International Airport in Wayne County, Michigan.

Police on the scene said the plane took off from Houston and made a stop before heading to Detroit, NBC affiliate WDIV reported.

A man who heard the crash was able to pull one person from the burning debris. The two other people on board the aircraft did not survive.

The survivor was coherent and speaking when officials arrived, police said.

No one on the ground was hurt. The plane damaged a power line, struck a tree and caught fire, police said.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the pilot did report landing gear issues moments before the crash.
