Plane lands on a highway - level 2
A small plane was taking two women on a Statue of Liberty tour when some problems with the engine occurred.
The plane was forced to make an emergency landing on a busy New York expressway. Workers who were at the expressway stopped traffic and cleared the road for the plane to land. The pilot and the women are now in hospital.
The New York mayor said it was a miracle nobody was seriously hurt or killed.
Difficult words: occur (happen), force (make somebody do something), expressway (city highway).
