MORTON — A small airplane made an emergency landing Saturday afternoon in a bean field in Renville County.

The pilot, Harvey Buller, 75 of Mountain Lake, was not injured and the plane was not damaged.

The incident happened around 12:50 p.m. when the Renville County Sheriff's Office received a report of a small aircraft in a field two miles north of Morton in Beaver Falls Township.

A deputy arrived at the scene, which was south of County Road 2 and west of U.S. Highway 71, and discovered a small plane had landed in a bean field.

Buller told deputies he had been flying the 1948 Piper aircraft north from Jackson when he encountered engine problems and needed to make an emergency landing.

Buller was not injured and the aircraft did not sustain any damage during the landing.

The aircraft was eventually removed from the scene.

The incident remains under investigation by the sheriff's office and the Federal Aviation Administration.
