August 21, 2009 - Men Survive Fiery Airplane Crash in NJ

Police in Bergen County, N.J., say two men on board a small aircraft survived a fiery crash near Teterboro Airport Friday.

Little Ferry Police Officer Adam Warne said when he responded to the emergency call he found the airplane's pilot and passenger alive but injured a safe distance from the fiery wreckage, New York's WPIX-TV reported.

"I saw the wreckage and they both said 'We were in the plane.' So I was a little taken aback," Warne said, "(I asked) 'How did you walk away from this?'"

One of the victims was identified as George Maddox of Reading, Pa. The other's name wasn't given. It wasn't clear who was piloting the plane, authorities said.

One man was in critical condition with severe burns while the other survivor was hospitalized with head injuries. Both were expected to survive. No other injuries were reported in relation to the crash.

Little Ferry Police Chief Ralph Verdi said prior to crashing in a parking lot near the airport during an attempted landing, the twin-engine Jaguar Special Edition Beechcraft King Air issued no distress calls.

WPIX said the cause of the crash, which reportedly produced a fire with flames at least 20 feet high, was under investigation.
