Emergency Landing

A pilot was forced to make an emergency landing in downtown Birmingham Saturday afternoon.

Reports say the pilot and one passenger were headed to Tampa, Fl. from Kansas City.

They were making a stop at the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth international airport to refuel when low visibility caused complications for the pilot.

The pilot walked away uninjured but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

The passenger suffered minor injuries and was transported to UAB hospital. A parachute attached to the plane helped with the landing.
