Small airplane makes emergency landing near Quebec City

Two people were injured after a small single-engine plane made an emergency landing on Saturday afternoon in Neuville, near Quebec City.

The plane landed shortly after 12 p.m. ET Saturday in a wooded area near Highway 40 East.

Audrey-Anne Bilodeau of the Sûreté du Québec said the two people aboard the plane were transported to hospital. She said authorities do not fear for their lives.

A problem during take-off appears to have been the cause of the emergency landing.
