STAFFORD TOWNSHIP - A new video has surfaced that shows a Cessna plane make an emergency landing on Route 72 over the weekend in Stafford Township.

The video shows the plane quickly dropping from the sky and landing on the highway, narrowly missing power lines and other vehicles. The plane then swerves onto the median before coming to a stop.

The small plane was 4,000 feet in the air when something went wrong, forcing the pilot to make the emergency landing.

Two skydiving instructors from Skydive East Coast and two students were also on board. The only injury reported was a cut to one of the instructor's arm.
