MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A single-engine aircraft ended up overturned in the Everglades, just west of Hollywood on Thursday afternoon.

Images from Chopper 4 showed two occupants standing on the plane’s wings awaiting rescue. They looked to be uninjured.

The Federal Aviation Administration identified the plane as a Cessna 172.

Officials said the aircraft was located 10 miles west of Hollywood and that it went down at around 12:45 p.m.

Rescuers had to get to the scene on airboats.

Here is what officials said about the rescue:

“When firefighters arrived, they met with two occupants, a pilot and a student whom were tucked underneath the tail section of the overturned Cessna which was miraculously still in one piece suffering only minor damage.”

“Both occupants were able to safely free themselves unassisted from the downed aircraft before rescue assets arrived. Both occupants are male, believed to be in their mid to late twenties suffering only minor injuries and were transported back to shore by airboat and then placed into a ground rescue for transport to Cleveland Clinic Hospital in Weston where they are expected to fully recover.”

The FAA is investigating, and the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified.

Aviation Accident Final Report - National Transportation Safety Board: https://app.ntsb.gov/pdf

Docket And Docket Items - National Transportation Safety Board: https://dms.ntsb.gov/pubdms

NTSB Identification: GAA16CA360
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Saturday, July 02, 2016 in Pembroke Pines, FL
Probable Cause Approval Date: 12/05/2016
Aircraft: CESSNA 172, registration: N65645
Injuries: 1 Uninjured.

NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The student pilot reported that during the landing flare of his second solo, after the main landing gear touched down the "nose of the airplane swung" to the right. He further reported that he attempted to correct with left rudder, and that this is where "he lost control of the airplane". The airplane veered off the runway to the left, impacted an airport sign, and came to a stop at an intersecting taxi way. 

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the right wing. 

The student pilot did not report any mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The student pilot's failure to maintain directional control during the landing flare, which resulted in a runway excursion, and impact with a sign.

NTSB Identification: ERA15CA153
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Sunday, March 08, 2015 in Newport, RI
Probable Cause Approval Date: 08/11/2015
Aircraft: CESSNA 172P, registration: N65645
Injuries: 1 Uninjured.

NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The student pilot was conducting a solo flight and landing on a 2,999-foot-long, 75-foot-wide, asphalt runway. During touchdown, the airplane began to bounce, and subsequently landed hard, which resulted in substantial damage to the nose landing gear and firewall. The airplane veered to the left and contacted a snowbank that extended parallel to the runway. The student pilot reported that he did not experience any preaccident malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal operation. He further reported 43 hours of total flight experience, all in the same make model as the accident airplane, which included 7 hours logged as pilot-in-command.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The student pilot's failure to maintain aircraft control during landing, and his subsequent failure to recover from a bounced landing, which resulted in a hard landing.
