Plane makes emergency landing west of US Highway 27

A small plane made an emergency landing Wednesday in a remote area of Broward County near Everglades Holiday Park shortly after its pilot made a mayday call.

The single-engine Piper PA-28 made the emergency landing on a levee about two miles west of U.S. Highway 27.

Sky 10 was flying above the plane, which appeared to have made a crash landing along a dirt road running parallel to a canal.

Two people standing next to the plane appeared to be OK. A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman later confirmed that there were no injuries.

Local 10 News reporter Ian Margol said a flight student and instructor were flying back to North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines when the engine quit. The instructor took over and landed the plane.

The plane had a Wayman American Flight Training logo on it.

A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter and Broward Sheriff's Office deputies arrived a short time later.

The FAA is investigating.
