Two men took off from Palm Beach International Airport Thursday night, hoping to make a short hop to an airport in Kendall. Their flight was anything but ordinary.
The FAA is investigating why a plane lost power and forced to make an emergency landing in a local park.
Two pilots we're on board that plane. One of them was taken to a local hospital with non-threatening injuries.

Th plane took off from Palm Beach International Airport just after 10:30 last night.
The plane struck a light pole and part of a tree as it was forced to land inside Crandon Park in Key Biscayne, some 10-15 miles away from Miami Executive Airport, where it was expected to land.
The 2 pilots on board were flying on a Cessna C-172 aircraft, when they lost power and were forced to make an emergency landing inside the park.
No other injuries were reported.
