An 80-year-old woman from Wisconsin makes a safe landing as she took control of a small aircraft after her pilot husband collapsed, The New York Daily News reported.
Her husband passed out during the flight and later died, prompting his wife, a non-licensed pilot, to take control of the plane, authorities told the NY Daily News.
According to USA Today, the 80-year-old woman said that one of the plane's twin engines had ran out of fuel and lost power.
The woman had radioed for assistance, but an emergency landing was necessary before they arrived, The NY Daily News wrote.
Her 81-year-old husband was brought to a local hospital where he died. The hospital said that his death was the result of a preexisting medical condition, the NY Daily News reported.
The woman was treated for minor injuries and the FAA is still investigating the situation.
