Two rescue dogs were saved after a plane made an amazing crash landing in Wisconsin.
53 rescue dogs were being transported by an airplane from New Orleans to shelters in Wisconsin. The twin-engine turboprop aircraft was forced to crash land on the greens at the Western Lakes Golf Club, Pewaukee.
ABC News reported that the plane crashed through trees before landing on the course.
Matthew Haerter was Lake Country Fire and Rescue’s assistant chief. He praised the pilot for landing safely and without any major injuries. Haerter stated, “This could’ve turned out so much worse.”
The plane crashed, killing all three passengers and 53 rescue dogs. Minor injuries were sustained by both the dogs and the humans. 21 of those dogs required medical attention were adopted by the Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County.
