UPDATE: One person injured in small plane crash


Authorities say a small plane crashed early Sunday afternoon in Langlade County.

Sheriff's officials say the Cessna lost power around 1 p.m. and the pilot had to make an emergency landing near Elcho in a backyard.

Authorities say a husband and wife were inside the plane at the time. Police say the wife, who was a passenger in the plane, was taken to a hospital in Rhinelander with minor injuries.

The pilot was not injured.

Authorities say the FAA will head to the scene tomorrow to investigate.
