MUSKEGO, WI (WTAQ) - A pilot and his wife escaped injury when their single-engine plane made an emergency landing at a farm field in Muskego.

Joel Friedman said he was in the air for 11 minutes when his craft lost power late Wednesday afternoon.

A chopper from WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee found the plane while the Friedmans were waiting for help to arrive. He said he was hoping to find a smooth field to land in – but it ended up in rough terrain, and he was not immediately sure how he could remove the plane.

He landed between the southeast side of Muskego Lake and a busy Loomis Road.
