Pilot survives mild aircraft crash off Porthcawl coast, investigation launched

A light plane crashed into the sea off the coast of south Wales close to Porthcawl, Bridgend, prompting the HM Coastguard to answer the incident on Tuesday morning. The pilot managed to make it to dry land after the crash, which occurred around 9:20am. The Welsh Ambulance Service confirmed that one particular person was taken to the hospital for further therapy.
Margaret Kendrick, a local resident, witnessed the aircraft upside down in the water from her window. She recalled seeing a purple shape and talked about that another person nearby had seen the aircraft descending. Kendrick famous the fortunate landing location, because the pilot was extraordinarily near the rocks. Reliable stated, “The pilot walked away apparently, he was so close to the rocks – I thought I was seeing things.”
James Brown, a 75-year-old retired church minister, was strolling on Lock’s Common when he saw the airplane crash. Brown heard the aircraft’s engine “stutter” before it “swooped” into the water. He described the incident as “a very near miss” and believed that the outcome would have been different if the pilot had landed on the nearby rocks..
