An Anchorage father and his 12-year-old daughter suffered minor injuries when their plane crashed near Point MacKenzie on Wednesday evening, officials said.

A group of people staying in a nearby cabin saw the aircraft crash just before 6 p.m., said Mark Ward, an investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board.

A good Samaritan pilot saw the plane, picked up the pilot and his daughter and brought them back to Anchorage, Ward said. They were treated at a hospital for minor injuries, according to Alaska State Troopers.

The plane sustained substantial damage, Ward said. The 57-year-old pilot planned to return to the area Thursday to photograph the wreckage and work on removing the plane, he said.

It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the plane to crash, Ward said. Investigators had limited details early Thursday but the investigator said he planned to talk with the pilot to get more information.
