A small plane was forced to make an emergency landing Friday at Pitt Meadows airport.

According to multiple reports, the plane’s landing gear wouldn’t come down properly. The pilot was forced to put the plane down on its belly in a grassy field at the end of one of the runways.

The plane was lifted up by several volunteers, according to a report, while a seaplane tow cart was placed under the downed aircraft.

Neither of the two people in the plane were seriously injured, although a woman was taken to hospital, according to CBC.
