SANDUSKY — Authorities say a pilot made an emergency landing on a beach that runs alongside Cedar Point amusement park in northern Ohio.
Troopers tell The Sandusky Register that the single-engine plane landed on the Lake Erie beach not far from the park’s 200-foot tall Magnum roller coaster.
The State Highway Patrol says the plane hit a duck Tuesday afternoon, cracking the plane’s windshield and forcing the pilot to bring it down.
The pilot wasn’t injured, and the plane didn’t sustain any other damage.
