Port Elizabeth - A shocked Port Elizabeth man has described how he was playing with his dog on the beach when a small plane came crashing down.

Johann Terblanche from Uitenhage was not injured but his dog Tessa, lost an eye and suffered a leg injury, reported Die Burger.

A student pilot was apparently on a training flight when he noticed smoke and had to make an emergency landing.

He headed for the only bit of land he could see, which was Bluewater Bay Beach near Port Elizabeth.

“Tessa and I were playing with the ball on the beach when a plane flew down low over me. I had to fall down to escape being hit,” said Terblanche.

An emotional Terblanche said veterinary treatment for the dog was already more than R1 000 on Sunday afternoon.

The shocked but unhurt pilot did not want to speak to the media.
